I rarely post anything remotely personal but last night I finished my first round edit of a novel I've been writing for well over a year.
(Only about 10 or so people even know I have been writing a novel, and now, its basically finished with the exception of further editing and tweaking.)
Now is the scary part that I've been hoping wouldn't happen. At this point I don't know what to do with this novel at this stage. I assume I need to begin pursuing an agent or something...it all seems to get a little more scary from here.
Also at this point no one has read any of it (except my wife who I allowed to read the first chapter a couple months ago after I had finished my first rough draft). It's intimidating to me to think of people I know reading my novel.
