Book in a Week-Day Seven

I finished. I wrote over 3,000 words, shifted scenes, and got to the end. And she made me cry. she is a great heroine. And he's great, too. And I have 60,839 words to play with and revise. As I was showering today, I got more ideas for the ending, but I resisted. I will play with them over the weekend and get stuff jotted down.

BUT I AM DONE!!!

Happy Dance!!!!

And I learned a very important thing: NEVER give your first draft up to anyone till it IS WRITTEN AND COMPLETED, HOWEVER SHITTY IT IS. NEVER!!

I didn't have the teary moment when I finished number 3... I lost control over the CORE of the story before I finished it.

NEVER AGAIN!!

Any other time, yeah, read on. Critique on. Tell me how to improve it... bring it on during the revisions...

And now I am having my glass of wine and celebrating!!

Let's just say I primed the canvas and now the real work begins.

Thanks Mary!

I highly recommend the book in a week course for writers. It'll bring you back to the original reason you began this "beautiful obsession."

Good luck with your writing!
