Cue 80’s victory music.

I finished my first draft today.

Holy crap.

I did it, guys. I actually did it.

I mean, months later than I originally planned on, and the thing is an awful, disorganized, chaotic mess, but I did it.

I’m giving myself a day to breathe and fist pump the air, and then I’ll decide how to move forward. But for now?

Holy cow. First draft down!

    • Awesome – 16,000 words is a solid amount! What genre is your first draft, if you don’t mind me asking? My first draft is ~64,000 words, but that will definitely change when I begin to revise.

      Thanks for the congrats! πŸ™‚

      • I just got up to 20,500. πŸ˜€
        It’s a crime, drama, comedy. That made no sense, did it? I’m not sure entirely how serious or how playful I’m going to handle the story. But yeah, it’s a story with lot of drug abuse, action and illegal things.
        You know what scares me? The part after the draft is ready. Finding agents and all that. I heard that agents don’t represent new authors easily unless you have short story publications and such.
        Do you have a good resume in that area?

      • I do not have a good resume in that area, so we’ll see how it goes. I’ve had one short piece published before this several years ago, which doesn’t count for much, I don’t think. I’ll try to keep you informed on the process!
