That’s my excited scream, in case you couldn’t tell. It is demonstrably distinct from my petrified scream, which hopefully I’ll never have cause to use on this blog. So why am I screaming like a crazy person? Brcause I have finished the first draft of my novel.
Before you get carried away, let me stipulate: It is just a first draft. There are some parts I like, but there are a lot of parts that make me think, why in the world did I think writing a book was a good idea?
Basically, there’s still a long road ahead of edititng, rewriting, hurling myself at a wall and rewriting some more. But for the first time in my life I have written a book that has a beginning, a middle, and an end.
