Kinda Lost

I.... don't know what to do right now. I finished the edits of my first novel. I'm very, very happy about that. It took me so long to do. Far too long. I sent the manuscript off to my two beta readers. I've even written the query letter, revised it, and chosen the agent I'm going to send it to. Now...... what do I do?
I've never gotten this far in a project before. Never. I'm a starter, a notorious starter. (Ask my high school friends who put up with all of my story snippets and unfinished drawings.) And now I've finished a novel. Not just the first draft, but it's ready to go out to other people.

And be read by an agent.

And possibly be read by complete strangers.

A daunting prospect to say the least. It's like a phantom over my life at the moment. Now, after editing for so long I have to go back to writing in the moment. I think I've forgotten.

Let's find out.

So. Much. To Do.

So today I attempt to finish the fastest novel edits in human history. Okay, that's probably not true, but that's what it feels like. Hopefully, I can find my inner Superwoman.
