I love this image. Have you ever felt totally embraced by words alone? They say a picture's worth a thousand words--well, this is the effect I'm writing for with my novel Finding Home (of course, not until after I break your heart first).
Update on my word count saga: I've cut 10,000 words from the first eight chapters. That's some serious trimming. I have another 45,000 words to cut before this book is ready for prime-time. The goal: 90,000 words or less.
