Writer’s Milestone – An Awesome Day!

Today is a major day. Major. Day.

As a writer, I have many milestones to shoot for, and I’ve finally reached a big one. After more than a year of tinkering away, I finally completed the first draft of CROSSLINE, my follow-up novel to FINDERS KEEPERS.

Man, that feels good!

I’ve still got work to do, however. Now that I’ve got a first draft, I have to read it through, edit, tighten, change, tweak, re-arrange, cut, add and rejigger any sections that need rejiggering. It’s a big tToday is a major day. Major. Day.

Man, that feels good!

I’ve still got work to do, however. Now that I’ve got a first draft, I have to read it through, edit, tighten, change, tweak, re-arrange, cut, add and rejigger any sections that need rejiggering. It’s a big task, but one I can’t wait to get to. When you hunker down with one project for so long, it’s easy to get lost in it sometimes, so it’s just a great feeling to reach the finish line, or, at least, a finish line.

If all goes well I’ll be done with my edits within 60 days, but hopefully less, and then I’ll be able to step away from for it a while as I circulate among my writer buddies for feedback.

More work to be done, but for today, for right now … it’s time celebrate. Today is a damn good day.
