CMD Programming with a sawzall

I haven't posted through the holidays.  I have been working but nothing intersting enough to post about. 

I have been on another writting kick.  The book is done...at least the rough draft is as of this evening.  175,000 words.  I'm sure that will swell as I edit it but I really like how it has turned out.  The question is:  will anyone else?  

I have turned parts over to someone who is reviewing it for me, kind of a personal editor.  It is always very different (and unnerving) to have someone else read what you have written.  The story is alive in your head, things that make perfect sense to you may not make sense to someone else that is reading it.  All part of the process I suppose.

I am going to take a break for a week or so and then go back through it editing it.  I have spent so much time on this over the holidays that other things have been left untouched...the Christmas lights come down tomorrow...I promised my wife.

One of the goals I set for myself this year is to start looking for a literary agent by mid-year.  It will need to be hammered into shape if I am going to accomplish that.  Goals a are a good thing.
