    First draft of first book finished!

    I'm not really sure what to do with myself now...

    Not really, but I've been working on this in fits and starts forever and it feels odd to be done with the first stage.

    I realize I have a long, long road ahead before I'm even ready to think about querying, but it feels so good to have gotten to this point!

    Thanks everyone who has given advice on bits I've posted so far!
    You can't... start to delete a word so you can change it to a different word but then keep the first letter of the old word...
    it will eventually eat the new word's soul and turn it into an evil, undead word-zombie...
