Okay, I’m not done-done. I have to smooth over the rough spots and send to some readers before I go through the edits, but the rough draft of Across the Silk Road is complete!

I reused very little of the old manuscript aside from the characters and plot and rewriting it made me realize how far I’ve come. On the flip side, I was reminded how I wasn’t afraid to dream big before I knew anything about writing. I don’t think I’d plot a book like this today. What was I thinking? Tee hee…

Now I have to make it human readable and send it off to Little Sis.

    Now I need to follow your good example and finish my first draft of Lady of the Snow.

    Well done and ditto, for me, Dara. At least you have a first chapter!
