I did it.

I finally finished writing something.  I’m so proud.  I think the last piece of fiction writing I had actually finished was somewhere around five years ago (save for posts on this blog, but they don’t count, do they?).

So I wrote a short story, a little over 2,300 words, and right now I’m flush with excitement that it has a beginning, a middle…a conclusion.  Ahhhhhh.  There’s just nothing to describe the sense of accomplishment that comes when you type those two little words:  “The End.”

Now I will keep on with the Novel, the MANUSCRIPT…the thorn in my side.  Wish me luck…maybe I’ll be able to find my way to the end there, too.  Not any time soon, mind you. 

But someday.

  1. Congratulations!

    I think writing a short story is actually much harder than writing a novel, so whenever I finish a short story, I get very excited too.


  2. That is so great Mary! I know you’ll finish the novel too. I would love to write a children’s story someday. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
