done, Done, DONE!

Finished! Finished! (Dancing in the street) I have finished Wintersland, the novel I began writing two years ago, this very month. It came in at around 33,000 words, so, technically, not a novel, but I can already see that, with revision, it will top 40,000, which is novel-length. I was all set to beat myself up for taking two years to write 33,000 words, but when I considered that I had major medical problems, a job change, and a massive re-write sandwiched in there, I think I did alright. The story is rough, and will definitely need revision, but I'm just happy it's done. I dedicated it to my brother, Michael. He would have been 42 today if he was still alive.

Congratulations! Writing is and always was my biggest love. Unfortunately, I'm still just on short stories. Hopefully, I will sit down sometime soon and start on my first novel too.
Best wishes,

La primera diferencia se encuentra relojes de imitacion en los números de la esfera, éstos son diferentes; los del reloj réplica son más delgados y sencillos, sin una replicas rolex franja plateada en la orilla, como en el replicas de relojes original.
