Finished a novel today. Feels good get it all out. Around in January, I realized that I had been playing around too much and if I ever wanted to get anything published, I need to get off my ass and do something. Looking at my long list of novel ideas, I decided to pick one and just do it already.
One of my new years resolutions was to finish the rough draft by the end of March. Completing ahead of schedule feels great! It makes me want to do another one. Maybe in the fall. Right now, I'm tried. Spewing out that much wordage on top of everything else that's been going on has made me absolutely exhausted. I definitely need a break to recharge my batteries.
This will be my second novel. First one full length. Alas, I was aiming for 100,000 words, but my count fell just above 90,000. Still, this is only a rough draft. There are so many things that need to be added into the story so there is still plenty of opportunity to get it up to the length I want. (That's what she said?)
For right now, I just have to make sure I keep working on this project and take care not to let it sit and fester on my computer half way finished. Wish me luck!
