As of right now, I've finished the Prologue and Chapters 1-3. I am getting more confident about the writing quality, though I still have terrifying moments where I think it's absolutely horrible. No matter what, I'm going to stick with the editing until I'm done, then see what my friend thinks of it, and go at it again. This part of the process has had a weird mixture of detached editing and creative moments.
So far it's moving along quickly enough. I even had time to go to the Phoenix Zoo with my husband and daughter between edit sessions:
New Year's Eve is only a couple of days away! I am beginning to think it's my favorite holiday of the year. I love the feeling of changing my habits for the better and getting to share that feeling with thousands of people all over the world makes New Year's a pretty awesome time of year.
