Happy Halloween! (Oh, and I finished The Book)

Yes! The Book is done. The very first, extra rough draft of Can't Stand the Heat clocked in at 397 pages, a cool 101, 186 words. Needless to say, I'll be looking for extraneous material to cut when I go back through to polish it up before sending it to The Editor. There are several things I already know need to be changed (for instance, the first half of the book is set in early fall, the second half in late spring) and some things I'm worried about (like, is the heroine an irretrievably unsympathetic meanie?) but overall I'm pretty happy with it. I think. I won't really know until I do my read through, today and tomorrow.

Anyway, now I can focus on my Halloween costume! Would it be a terrible cop out if I just wore a red dress I already own and a black witch hat? I'm not sure I have the energy for anything more elaborate. If anyone else has party plans, especially costume party plans, I'd love to hear about them.

Happy Halloween!


Wear your red dress, witch hat and carry a broom. You'll be fine!

Congrats on finishing! I want to be next. lol

work that red dress, baby!

congrats on finishing! Am so excited!!

Woohoo!!! Congrats, Lou! I'm so proud of you!

Thanks for the congrats, everyone. K, I'm just relieved I finished before you, since I started like 6 months before you did.

I bought black/white striped tights, a witch hat, and a set of red spangly fake eyelashes. I think I'm good to go.

Congrats girl! Get out there and CELEBRATE!!

Happy Halloween!

Oh, I'm working my way through a bottle of champagne, don't you worry.


Woot Woot! So proud of you. I'm sure you look HOT in that red dress. :)

Congrats on being done!!! It's such a great feeling!

Major Congrats!!! Woo Hoo!!
