I acually finished my novel yesterday. I would say that it sputters to an end. I am not sure if I am going to re-write it all. I picked a selection to read for the closing party tonight. When I picked what I wrote first. I realized that my idea changed so much when I tried to put it on paper. Maybe there is still a good novel in this idea. I think I should put it away for a while and try again later.
