    I Have Published My Book, Finally.

    I started my paranormal book in November 2010 through NaNoWriMo (http://www.nanowrimo.org); it encourages me to write 50k in 30 days. After my 3rd edit I had 776 pages (6x9, large print) and 180k words later. . . http://www.amazon.com/The-Whispering-Path-Rebekah-Wolveire/dp...

    Sometimes in my life I think publishing a book

    would be really cool. It's like me leaving my imprint in the world. A book wrote by me staying in this world for whoever to read even after I die. It's just kinda cool to me.
