43,500 words, dude

BOOK UPDATE: Dude, I am writing a book. No, seriously, dude. I'm writing a freaking book. Me. The dumb little monkey boy. I'm writing a book. You don't know how crazy that is, dude.

That's kind of how I feel right now. I have finished the third part of my four-part book and the reality that, you know, I'm writing a book, is setting in. I am so damn cool. Take that, chicks that dumped me in high school!
This fourth part should be the easiest because it is basically a variation of a story that I've been telling for years. I've even written it out before, although it was awful that time -- ask Esther, she read it.

I suspect that I will have a complete draft of the book by mid-December. From there, I will read through the whole thing again and make any edits I can find. Then I plan on having my wife read it. She is an avid reader and hopefully can offer some constructive criticism. I'll make any necessary changes that come out of her reading and then start pestering agents and publishers in earnest. I am still waiting to hear back from the agent I contacted last week.

Is Rosco P. Coltrane the lead hero?

Sadly, no. But he should be.
