Well, it’s really frustrating not to be able to copy the image into WordPress, but — I have “completed” my third novel, second draft. It has huge holes in it, but there is a beginning, a middle, and an end, and — more importantly for me — I did it in a month.
Thanks to Elizabeth, once again, over at the Garden Window — having gotten me into this fix in the first place (for which I am profoundly grateful!) by posting on her blog about this contest, she has now come to my rescue by pointing me to the directions for uploading the image. I was hoping I could get away with not having to save it to my computer, but frankly, for bragging rights like these, it’s worth it to have the “badge” saved in My Pictures. Never in a million years would I have thought it possible to write a 50,000-word novel in a month!! (It does help that I’ve been kicking around ideas for two years — still, the thing would remain unwritten to this very point, if it hadn’t been for this kickstart.)
Somebody asked me if I had written about an Orthodox priest, and no, I haven’t done that. I guess I will have to consider that for the next series.
Wishing all readers of this blog a Happy Thanksgiving — at least it will be a more relaxed one for me. 😉
