What did I just do? I just finished writing the first draft of Katherine. It doesn't feel real!
I started writing Katherine in June this year. Five months later and she is 25,707 words long. That's 5,707 words over the limit to put her into the Novella competition, but there is still time to edit. My goal over the next few days is to transform her into something a little more concise. I already have an idea which entire scenes I can backspace, although I'll be saving a copy of the first draft for the expected no-win of this competition, so that I can put her into the Text Prize competition next year and whatever else comes along.
The reality of finishing my second full manuscript hasn't quite hit me yet, but I assure you that I am brimming with excitement right now!
How is everybody else going with their writing or revision goals? NaNoWriMo? Do share! I'd love to have a discussion!
