Blogging My Novel: Draft 5 Complete!

First of all, thanks so much to all of you who cheered me on. It's been a rather intense week. I'm not used to spending so much time just me and the old laptop. I can hardly believe it's done--even chapter 14, which was a complete nightmare. I've written a children's novel. Whoopee!!!

Now what?

It's time to send it off to my SCBWI critiquing partner. She'll give it a once over before I zip off copies to the agents who seemed to like it so much back in the spring.

Eek. I can almost smell the rejections already.
