Yes, I'm using an Olympics analogy. I have crossed my finish line and finished my book! "Threads of a Tapestry" is done as of Aug.8/08! BTW, this date is supposed to be the luckiest ever according to Chinese philosophy. Hope it rubs off on my ms.

Now I have to let it settle for a bit and then tackle the editing process. I am going to give myself until the end of September to polish it up and then I'll have to decide whether to submit it to a publisher or get an agent first. Big decision!

The Olympics have been so inspiring, not just to athletes, but to anyone trying to achieve a goal. Their dedication and perserverance is awe inspiring. People like Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt blow me away! And the Canadian diver (sorry, can't remember his French name). Great stories of persistance to gain your dreams.

I will continue to write with my goal in sight!

Congrats on completing your latest manuscript. That's quite a feat, as any writer will tell you. In my book you deserve a medal.
