Completely and Utterly Alone...

Yes, that is what I am! I am completely and utterly alone for the first time in nearly five months. Now, before you jump to conclusions Don is taking a nap in the other room, the kids have just finished their homework and my dinner is smelling very nice in the oven. i am not in most senses alone, but most of you know that I have been working fairly diligently on my novel that started approximately five long months ago. I have worked day and night and sometimes through the night to get it going. Only one person has challenged herself to see if she could live through the boredom and I have delivered the final half that she had not read yet. Is it all over with? Oh no!!! I have plenty of re-writes to do, but this is my scariest moment...letting people outside my own mind read it. I reach anxiety attack levels unheard of by anyone else. So, we shall see how it all goes. I am giving copies to all of those in my writing group on Thursday night and then I will hide in the little cave of my mind and await their responses. If you see me in the corner hyperventilating while waiting for responses then you will know why. it turned out to be a massive 176 pages, which honestly does not sound like a lot until I actually printed them off. Amazing!!!

Well all, wish me luck!!!
