A long while ago, I posted an excerpt from my book on Lucasforums here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5052) and got a lot of great feedback. Just wanted to let you know that after four years, twelve pens, and six notebooks, I finished my first draft which weighs in at approximately 782 hand-written pages with 160,000 words.

I am now doing the first re-write to hammer it into shape. Qwi Xux who was a regular here and if you remember her, know that she died last year, was a huge help to my entire project. She helped me through several tough chapters and I really hate that I didn't finish it before she died. But, many of you guys helped me out and gave me feedback that really bolstered my confidence and drive to finish it.

Hopefully by next year it will look good enough to send around to publishers.

Thanks again.

I to am writing a book and am half-way through it. It is good to know others out there are capable of completing a project. Mine is now, only 27 pages long on Microsoft Word. It was 50, but I scrapped the other page. They were kaput and going no where.

I'm working on my fourth.

My last book, "Treespeak" can still be found at Borders.

Glad to see others catching the writing bug.
