10/13/08 — DONE! Finally. After 32 rewrites and over two years, STORM MOUNTAIN is now on its way to New York City and my agent, and ultimately onto my editor’s desk.
Actually, “DONE!” is not right. DONE FOR NOW! is more like it. The manuscript will come back with suggestions, which I am really looking forward to. My experience is that my stories always improve with editorial help.
In the meantime, I’m going to reward myself with a few days off to go rock climbing and mountain biking in the Cascades. Thankfully the weather forecast is good, so no storm mountain for me.
