Last night I hit the end of the novel and called it quitting time; therefore hitting my first big milestone with this story. While I didn’t hit the word goal I had set, I did accomplish what I set out to do this month, which was finish the first draft. Overall, I wrote a small count of 6,862 words. I’m relieved that the first draft is done and I can’t wait to tear into some old scenes now to rewrite things. I also can see the gaping holes that I need to fill. Overall, the book screams “SLOPPY AND UNPROFESSIONAL, HOW DARE YOU CALL THIS A FIRST DRAFT” but thankfully I’ve learned appreciate messy in the firsts.
Second draft, here I come! 🙂
