I’ve added so much at this point–I think I’ve seen 4 different headers that said Chapter 19…At any rate, he just told her he loves her…in front of the whole world. She feels like a @$$. Who can blame her? She made some dumb decisions to get her sitting in front of the TV watching instead of there with him.”|

This is the thing, my husband and I went through some really bad crap. I’ve never really dealt with my past until now. What makes a story “based on a true” one? I’m starting to wonder, but know this…as rough as it is–this is based off of my life.”|

I wonder if it’s a bad thing…some of my other novels people have commented the same–saying they are novellas, when in fact they are well over the 40K max of a novella. It’s not that they don’t have depth–they do. You just get swept away in the story line…if I do say so myself…”|

|05/15||74.0%||“I’ve decided on three additional chapters thus far that need to be added. I think this will help with the flow in the beginning of the book and give a little more background about the MC and her life/relationships outside of Evan. I’m still hoping to be done and able to get this to my editor by Sunday night, though. Hopefully, we can work together to get this done before my financial accounting class starts…;)”|
