I did it. That is all there is to say. I have to admit winning it did not give me the satisfaction I was waiting for. However, the days when I had to squeeze my brain for the last drop of word or when creativity surged just when I did not want to see a computer monitor for the rest of my life gave more satisfaction than seeing the badge on my page.
I ask myself a question though: What next?
Yes, I have finally created the characters that lived in my brain since high school, but will anybody read it? I know Syme Gozun will ^-^
I guess all I have to do is wait for the book to be published, the rights to be mine, and I can publish it on my own. What do you say?
