After a frantic week – my first novel is done!
I am celebrating slightly early on though.
1st because it needs a final edit – I have lots of RED bits which are the things that need reviewing. I also have lots of ???? where I am not sure if the words flow or where I need to check facts.
2nd – my deadline was Friday 13th March – so a week late. Hey, creative writing doesn’t always fit to timelines.
I was aiming for a short novel (novella) around 66-68 thousand words but it’s tipped the 77K – so that’s good.
3rd – it’s not really my first novel. I have about 6. Some will never see the light of day (or a lit screen) because they are pants! Others may appear once re-worked??
Anyway – I am feeling very 🙂 🙂 🙂 today – right now.
It won’t last – I know! When the editing begins in earnest & I sit for 30 minutes worrying over word choices: is it dreary or darkly ?? Hmm???
anyway – I will be publishing a short prequel story to the novel in the next few days – so watch out!
The novel is a contemporary dark fantasy. It is a modern romance so that means sex but also real emotions and relationships – not just a woman swooning every time the guy smiles vaguely in her direction… oohhh…my eyes are flutering uncontrollably….
