I've done drafts of novels... two in fact, but those haven't gotten beyond the draft phase. And I had a short story I was working on that stalled out. Basically I fell out of love with the characters and if I don't love them how can I expect anyone else to?
But this time I finished the story, revised it a couple of times, and turned it in. This will be part of an anthology a group of us is putting together for the next RT Booklovers convention in Las Vegas, May 2016 and it will also be offered up for sale.
Things are moving now so I'm real excited. I might even get one of the novels I drafted finished.
