It's not every day that I quote "Jabberwocky," but today is special--I finished my book! Finished writing it, that is. I still need to finish the one I'm reading, but one project at a time. :)
What a relief it is to have gotten it all down on paper, every little detail and theme that I wanted to express. I would be doing a spritely little dance, but it's 95 and I have to drive to class tonight in a car with no air conditioner, so that sort of balances things out.
You might ask, "But Julia, why have you included a twelve-year-old picture of your son wearing family heirloom lederhosen?"
I could say that the text and the graphic have absolutely nothing to do with each other and that I just thought it was a cute picture--which is true. But there is one tenuous link between them. In my new book is a little boy named Charlie, and I pictured him looking a lot like this.
Okay, off to look at the house I haven't cleaned in two weeks. :)
