The Light at the End of the Tunnel

That's right, there really is a light at the end of the tunnel! I'm beginning to feel it and see it. Just a few more chapters for Sandi to edit and it will be finished. At least that much of it will be. There is still more to come.

Right now I am going through the WIP and correcting anything I see. It is amazing what I have missed. This is beginning to be fun. The rough draft has been finished for some time. I've increased my work schedule and I can see the trees, not the whole forest.

So many people have encouraged me along my journey. There are two who stand out in my mind, DiAnn Mills and Janice Thompson. I remember DiAnn telling me I had a story that needed to be told. When Janice read the first chapter at conference, she told me she was reading a book. WOW!!! I couldn't believe that. It was more than I expected.

So, I've learned a lot about writing on my journey. The funny thing is, I knew nothing about writing when I started. I could type on the computer and that was about it. Now, I have finished my novel, well almost.

Callie's Mountain has been in my heart for years. Seems like I never found time to write it. The people in it are my friends. Funny, but you think of them as real people. Callie is so much fun and has so much determination. Jacob is so in love with her.

A new chapter of my life starts now. My quest for an agent and a publisher start soon. I'm more confident than I was three years ago. This has been a big achievement in my life!


  1. Hi, Katt,

    I know what you mean by the little light way at the end of the tunnel.

    I'm happy for you to be at this place in your writing. It is a long journey and can get frustrating.

    I will praying for you to find an agent and publisher within the next year. Then on to the next book.

  2. I'm already on to the next book. I've started the sequel to Callie and you'll read today about the Women's Fiction. I love writing.
