Yes, The Feedstore Chronicles is complete. Save for a bit of editing that is.

I don't quite know what to make of the fact it took my half as long to write it as it did to live it, but in any case I am one happy dude this afternoon so I'll leave y'all with my all-time favorite



song.

Well done you!! Four years distilled into 70,000 words! Brilliant!

Great story in this song btw - a whole saga in 5 minutes of music! Excellent. Sonny and Cher.

Enjoy!

Very cool. Glad it is done. It's often very bittersweet for me when I finish a big project. How is it for you?

Congratulations! I am sure it is a great read, based on the excerpt that I read here.
My only claim to fame is that I just finished my 500th post.

Congratulations! :D There's nothing quite like the feeling of finishing a book, is there?

The only real-life story I want to write takes place over six weeks, and I guarantee that will take longer to write than it took to experience....

Terri Tiffany said...
