At 2:15 on October 19th, I finished my first draft. What’s more, is this is my first book. I must say, it feels great to have finished the story completely. I started the book the day after Christmas in 2011. This was after one false start and many pages and pages of development. I wrote the book by hand and overall it took me 3 1/2 100 page notebooks and two dead pens.
Over the next several posts I’ll recount the experience of working on the novel. From my expectations going in, to how things changed during the writing process.
I do want to give a shout out to my writing group. Without their feedback and support, I’m not sure I would have been able to complete even the first draft. Thanks guys.
But, more on writing groups later.
For now, I’m taking a breather!
