Today is a great day! Jane and I have been working hard the past few days, and –wonder of wonders– we have completed the first draft of our book.
I know I said that back in June, but this time I mean it. After about a million revisions and the addition of 8 chapters comprised of nearly 17,000 words, the story is complete and includes a much more satisfying ending.
Today is our deadline and we made it–hooray!
I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!! I want to stand up and cheer!!!
Of course, there is more to do… next step? Print off a copy and read it and tweak it to make sure everything is consistent. Estimated time to complete: 1 week.
Next step after that? Print a few copies and send to readers for comments and critiques. If you’re interested in being a reader, let me know.
