I made it! As of two days ago, I turned in my Manti temple manuscript. I had promised my editor he'd get it before Christmas. It was touch-and-go for a bit there, but it's done.
For those who have been following my progress, that means I reached all three of my personal writing goals for the last few months. First I had two word count goals that helped me get it drafted. Then I had a goal to get the first round of revisions done and the manuscript out to some of my personal readers. And finally, it was going over all of their suggestions and inputting them into the manuscript before turning it over to my editor before Christmas. (Wait. I think that makes more than three . . .)
I am hereby taking the next several days off to enjoy family and Christmas. I doubt I'll be near a computer much. I'll probably be reading, playing games, and taking a nap.
Sounds like heaven.
Merry Christmas to all!

Heaven on earth indeed! Congratulations and Merry Christmas!
That's great, Annette. You're so good to stick to your goals. I don't do very well at sticking to my goals. You definitely deserve this nice Christmas break!
I'm impressed Andie! More and more as I can't seem to get to that point! :) Have the merriest of Christmases--you deserve it!
Congratulations!! Now we can wait together :) Although I'm vowing to turn in all books before Thanksgiving from here on out. I don't want to go through the December rush again. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas Annette. I hope you have a wonderful New Year.
