I don't think there's a better feeling in the world, except maybe the day you see it sitting on the shelf in Borders. Congratulations!

Congratulations! What a good feeling that must be! Not that I'd know...

And as a side note, I remember you. Not well, but I do remember you.

Do you feel like the writer who finished the book is a better writer than the one who started it?

Hey, thanks guys.

Yeah, I feel like I'm a better writer now, just for having written something, (and also, you tend to learn things with the more practice you get.... so I've written a lot of words, I feel I'm better).

Yeah, now's the fun part... the editing.. but the hard part first is waiting a few weeks for everything to settle first. I've read quite a few writer books where they suggest this, and it sounds like a good idea, so I am.

Anyways... thanks for the support... I'll keep you updated on how things are in the future..
Just in case..
