Almost there

 Hello friends,

I'm so proud of myself.  I'm knackered right now because I went to bed at 2am but it doesn't matter. I finally managed to complete the ending to Chocolate Aftertaste. I've rewritten it so many times, but I'm finally there, finally happy. I've also reached the targeted word count for my novel. My next steps are to edit the scenes I have rewritten and then rewrite the dreaded query letter and synopsis. I plan to sent out some queries by my birthday in June.

I hope you're all on track with your own writing. If not (even if you are, actually), here are some tips:
