I love having the day off! Thanks for President's Day, I do! And what have I been doing? Yes homework...but also a lot of writing.
You can see in my main title that I have 55,671 - what does that mean? That's what I just hit on my novel. It's actually coming to an end. OH MY GOODNESS! Sorry just went off to dance and scream.
I cannot believe after two years, it's finally coming to a close. In a way. I still need to do the lovely editing process. But I look at the milestone of completion of the first draft huge. There were so many points where I didn't know how I was going to take the story. I've seen it in my head for so long I just wanted it down on paper. At times, I really didn't know it could be done. But now, after having a lot of faith, determination, and hard work, I'm that much closer.
Who knows what will happen after it's all edited. I will go on the path I suppose of getting my draft edited and hopefully finding an agent. It seem so weird and I honestly have my fingers crossed.
I think you go through a moment like - it's just me...how can I get all that. But I've followed a lot of writer's blogs and a year ago they were just like me, now a lot of them are published authors. It can happen. No, I may not be the next J.K Rowling (I wish!), but I want my story out there. I truly do. I will work hard to get to that point even if it takes me ten more years!
Sometimes you just want your voice to be heard. That's exactly what I'm doing.
So here is to 55, 671 and the "almost" completion of my first draft.
Any tips on what to do next? Love hearing from you all! Thanks. Hope writing is going as well for you as it is me.
