I heard your online interview at A Novel Idea. (I'm going to be on tomorrow!) I'm glad you shared about knowing when a book is finished. You said something like, "You have to let it go or it will never be finished." So…"

Hi Carole, I appreciate your taking the time to comment on my blog post. I so enjoy making new friends and haven't been on She Writes very long, so don't have many friends yet. I'm working on a novella requested by one of my publishers and it takes a lot of my time.
Carole, We're delighted to have you join us in the novelist group! If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion. We do a live chat Wednesdays at 1 EST, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one. I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

So again thank you!
