Shindarin Rising version 3 Finished

After toiling with the story and coming up short in word count, I decided that my story is my story. I honestly feel that if I continue to try and add to the story that it will become forced. This very well could be because of my maturity as a novelist (or lack there of). However, I decided that my story is where I feel it should be right now. The story simply is and will not be more without making it feel false and choppy. This may change if I get some sort of feedback that is honest and helpful. After coming to that conclusion, I decided to send off my first query letter today. Since this is my first attempt, I guess we'll see what comes of it. For now though, the e-mail has been sent. Wish me LUCK!
