I take a deep breath. The day has finally come. I feel jittery, unable to sit still. This six-plus year journey is really coming to a close right now. I am finally reaching the end of the path, and I look out and around, and I see more paths in front of me, and I smile. I am a journeyman for life, and I will keep traveling, soon as I catch my breath and gather up more provisions, I will be off on another journey.
I had no idea whether I would actually finish this monstrosity, this novel, this book, these 55,922 words that I have given the title, Nodtown, but here I am. All I have to do is proofread it, and I will be done. Done. Put together my entry for the contest, and I will be able to breath a sigh of relief as soon as I find out that I am officially entered.
I hope that it makes as much sense as it seemed to make when I was writing/editing it. I shall find out. Either way, whether it does or not, I am going to enter it. No turning back now.
Also, I received my work schedule for next semester. Not only do I work Monday-Friday (the Writing Commons are not open on the weekend), but I have a set schedule everyday, and time to study every day.
Going to do some celebrating tonight. :-)
