Yes, today is the big reveal that I promised last Friday, although if you've spotted my sidebar, it may not be that much of a surprise... but here goes ;)
I've finished the first draft of my first novel!
Yes... two years of blood, sweat and tears, but I finally wrote the last 15k on Monday, January 3rd, 2011, after waking up in a panic after my bout with the flu during the holidays.
It's clocked in at 95,977 words, 367 pages double spaced.
Um... yeah... it's a little longer that I had originally anticipated (80k), and needs some major editing and lots of rewriting, but figuratively speaking, it's finished.
In early December, I thought I was only 4k away, but the novel needed a lot more than that to wrap it up.
And now it's sitting and marinating while I do some research. Yup, we've got a lot of stuff to talk about this week, I hope you'll join me on Wednesday and Friday.
How about you guys? Any news... writing or otherwise?
