This Day in History, 1920: The Nineteenth Amendement

Eighty-five years ago today, the ratification of the nineteenth amendement to the United States Constitution was certified by the US Secretary of State, securing for American women the right to vote in all elections.

The Amendment reads:

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Novel Progress: Second Draft FINISHED at 115,000 Words

Just a few minutes ago, I finished my revisions to the novel. I ended up cutting a chunk, but the second draft is still a good sized book.

I'm hoping that this will be the end of it, and that it's good to go. However, I do have two professional writers who agreed to take a look at the book and give me feedback, and then I have to send it to my agent, and listen to her suggestions. But at this point, I'm ready to take a break from the project again, and concentrate on some other, shorter work that has been waiting for my attention.
