Writing Milestone

This week I sat at my desk during lunch every day and wrote. I've been working on the third book in my little trilogy I wrote for my daughters. I started the third book back in November of 2010 and finished it just now, 12:55PM, Friday.

I set it down several times in that period and honestly wasn't sure if I'd ever finish it.

Of course I have a long way to go before it's really "done" -- but the first complete draft is here and now I'm relieved. This one is about 10k words longer than the first two. I've been adding in so many missing scenes. I think I really didn't want to write the ending. I suppose that might say a lot about me and my feelings about many things. OR, it might just mean I'm lazy. Or tired. :)

Next steps include: more proofreading, editing, then bundling the three and finding a way to publish and distribute. Create ebooks/etc. Give printed or digital copies to various people/etc.

Now I'm free to start reworking last year's nanowrimo story. I've been excited to get back into that world.

  1. That kind of progress is truly motivating. It's like giving yourself a pat on the back.
