Woo hoo--"the end!!"

Today I wrote the words "the end" at the end of my children's novel, Saving Morgan Mountain, the sequel to Frog Haven.  It's not done, because there are a few missing bits and it's only a very VERY rough first draft, but I reached the end of the tunnel and the light is streaming around me,  YAY!  I've been working on it for several months in bits and pieces, almost every day.

I ALSO finished entering all the corrections to Frog Haven from the last set of readers today (from S & E).  I'm very close to be able to send it out, so if you have any further comments, let me know.

Woo hoo I am VERY EXCITED!  Not done, by any means, but it's a HUGE milestone!

YAY! Woohoo!

I was hoping to start pulling it together today, but we went to the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House. There was an "Insect Zoo" on display, which we went to see, but never saw. Got distracted by going on the guided tour and the solo walking tour.

They had a "Playhouse" built for the seven-year old daughter by the grandmother (she paid for it) that cost $15,000 and was big enough for real people to live in and had real working appliances and a everything miniaturized including the toilet and stove etc.

Anyway, I did no new work yet today.

Frog Haven is such a great work and I am very curious about your new novel.

Frog Haven kept me excited from the first page until the end.

Good luck for Saving Morgan Mountain

OH, good, I am glad to hear you liked Frog Haven. I hope you will also like Saving Morgan Mountain, which is the direct sequel when Sissy and Garryd go to Morgan Mountain Military Academy as "punishment" for disobeying.

I am already curious!

Still wonder if you have received my e-mails about Frog Haven since I've never heard back from you and I'm not sure if you could open my pdf's

No, I don't remember seeing anything about it at all, I will go look back. I was away for a while and got behind, so it's possible I missed them.
