I really must mark this moment. I am bound and determined to finish the first draft of my novel by the end of the year. Today is December 29th. Just now I came to a point in my novel where the lead character said these words:
It was as if the constellations had changed.
This sentence struck my heart. I realized its meaning in the context of the whole book, and a warm feeling came over me. I had to hold back the tears as I sat in the restaurant. I am still sitting there, pondering it all. There is something to it.
