I love the feeling of accomplishment!  When you have persevered through a difficult task and come out on top!  That's my feeling right now.  As of midnight on 4th of July, I am officially finished with revisions and edits on SOLSTICE!  Now, I know what you're all thinking: Melissa, you are never truly done until the book is printed and on the Bookstore shelf! And I agree, but I've just spent the past eight days and nights, revising and editing EVERY chapter for my submission requests from the WLT conference! And if I do say so myself, it is so much better.  Now, I can take a break from it, and write some more on my two current WIPs, TIMELESS & LOVESTRUCK!

That makes me feel very productive!  But, if my manuscript is very polished, shouldn't I can begin querying again? UGH!  I guess so!  Wish me luck everyone...I'm going into the trenches of query hell!


  1. Yay for productivity! That is great you finished that draft. Good luck with the other books and getting ready to query.

  2. Good luck in query hell. Eagerly awaiting good news! ;)

  3. wow mrs. dean. well i bet it wont be too long till we all see your creation on the shelves of borders!

  5. Nope, you should celebrate every time you have accomplished a goal, Melissa.

    Probably too late to comment to this, but hey, I just saw your last post too. I have you in my blog roll and check in once in a while.

    Happy writing!
