TALES OF MORCAH is finished! Well, the first draft anyway. I can't believe I was able to finish a book in a week. Phew! All my other first drafts have taken years to finish. ELEMENTAL took two.
But I have a problem. The first draft finished at 47,290 words. I know with revisions, I'll add about another 20,000 (yes, I write light the first time around), but NaNo is all about the 50,000 words. How sucky would it be to have a first draft completed and still not win at NaNo?
I'm going to take a week off to fulfill my other writerly obligations, then reread MORCAH and start with revisions. Wish me all luck!
Oh! I'll be doing a post on my method tomorrow. It's something I've never done before, so I hope it might work for some of you who edit while writing like I've always done.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!
