Finish Line!

It feels great to have finished a novel that I’ve been working on for a very long time. I appreciate all of the encouragement my readers and writing friends have given me through this blog and on the social networking sites. I didn’t write this particular book with a publisher in mind, so I’m not sure what is going to happen, but I have a ton of faith that, God-willing, this book will be in your hands someday. 

Writing this book was so hard. I wanted the process to challenge me and test my skill as writer and I feel like it did. There are times that I thought I was crazy and times that others might have shared my same thoughts, but sometimes going out on a limb is the only thing you can do to find out what you are capable of.

I don’t know if the results of this manuscript will be proof of my efforts, but the journey has been overflowing with lessons about storytelling that have stretched me as a writer. Now I can get back to writing the other one I’ve been working and am happy to say that it’s moving at a little bit faster pace this time. Writers should always be growing, so I hope the latest lessons I’ve learned will be evident in the manuscript I’m working on now.


Tina Ann Forkner is the author of the novels Ruby Among Us and Rose House, from Waterbrook Press, a Division of Random House.
