Photobucket Operation First Novel

Jamin has kept quite an ambitious writing schedule the past 6 months. He has written every night after work until midnight or 2 a.m. He's gotten up early and worked on editing etc. He's done this while keeping up with his other school assignments.

It all comes down to this: his novel is on it's way to Operation First Novel. Jamin would, of course, love to win or place as a finalist. We'd love that for him. Jamin has paid for his membership in Christian Writer's Guild, for he and Mike to attend Writing for the Soul conference last Feb, and has recently paid for college credits he is taking through Taylor University. I'd love for this little novel to make him some $$$$.

I decided that Jamin should have the fun of actually mailing the novel, so we stopped on our way home from dropping Jared off at Civil Air Patrol.
