First time poster, long time lurker
« on: August 05, 2010, 08:58:50 PM »
Hi!

I'm abbeysroad.  I've been lurking here for a bit of time and thought it'd be nice to do my intro.

I recently finished my first manuscript.  I call it this because quite frankly, I don't think of it as a novel until if I can get it published. :zip:

Here's to hoping.

I think it does need to be polished.  And spit shined.  And buffed.  And any other verb that will make it extra shiny.  Perhaps that stuff that comes in an aerosol spray can that makes things shiny?  How about turtle wax?

  Turtle wax is definitely an idea.  I think we'd all prefer an easier route, something more exotic than the norm. ;D

  But, I usually polish mine with good old fashioned sweat. :yes:

Oooohhh mannnn!  I hate sweating.  How bout I work really really hard on it?  Will that work?  Or do they sell extra hard working turtle wax at Home Depot?  Tee hee.

Maybe I should try Home Depot.  Thanks for the idea, abbysroad.   :duh:

Great name, by the way.  Very Beatlesque.  :up:

Welcome to QT. The way I see it, the only way it won't be a novel (in your mind) is if you give up.

Here's a cup of cheer for you to lift your spirits and send you back to work! :duet: or maybe you prefer  :koolaid:. Either way, happy writing.
