I don't normally post other than on Mondays and Tuesdays but I just had to share that I just hit 50,001 words in my manuscript and now I finally feel that it's a novel. At least it's the minimum word count a novel should be. Yahoo!! I don't even care whether the words are any good, I just can't believe I've written a novel. Ever since I read Little Women, I wanted to be Jo, ensconced in an attic, scribbling away. I am still not done with this revision - have about 20 pages to go - but I was so excited I had to talk about it. And who better to understand how I feel than all of you.

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.

"The way to do is to be."
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs..(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."
