16. Write a novel
Completed November 2004.
Thanks to NaNoWriMo (NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth) and NaNoEdMo (NAtional NOvel EDiting MOnth), I finished a novel. I spent November 2004 writing and then spent March 2005 editing. As a reward for my hard work, I have a second rough draft of my very own novel, Loving Marilyn.
A few manuscripts went out to friends for feedback, and it will need several more revisions before it’s anywhere near ready to send to a publisher, but it’s written.
