first draft

Those days and nights are forever etched deep within my heart

The first draft is done

Those days and nights are forever etched deep within my heart.
I see their faces, hear their voices,
though so many years apart.
Their love and friendship, counsel and humor,
are a part of what I say.
And nudge me now so gently with thoughts I write each day.

Almost three weeks to the day after returning from Springfield, Illinois.  I typed the final words to the last sentence of my novel.  The first draft was written in only 58 days.  This is an example of how an online romance can be used as motivation!  It was finally time to email the manuscript to Kathryn to begin editing.
