The two magical little words…

Magic entered my living room today in many more ways than one….

But the one which stood out and that I want to shout to the world: I finished the first draft of my manuscript!

For the first time since Iยดve been trying my hand at writing (and it has been a looooong ride), I put an end to a novel I am working on.

Bumps appeared on the road…days when I thought I would not succeed….many more when I had a blast typing away even if it was just for 30 minutes, stealing precious time from the places I could (aka my commuting).

Getting to the end is exhilarating and scary and everything in between.

I know it is not the end of the journey and my heart races when I think about the editing, beta-reading and all of the questions or challenges I may face in the process. Plus, there is the next book in my mind…

But for now…I am just living in the moment and enjoying it ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you all for supporting me and cheering me on along the way. I am one lucky lady!

  1. Congratulations! It’s such a great feeling to have that first draft done ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy this time, and best of luck with the edits! It’s a magical process, too, and you learn so much.

  2. I am not so great at finishing manuscripts so I wholeheartedly applaud you. No one can truly appreciate what you just did until they have tried it. Congratulations and enjoy it.

  3. Congratulations!!! I find editing just as fun as writing it. Sure there are sometimes where you’re like…’wow, that is bad’. But that’s what editing is for! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Congrats! I am working on my own first draft slowly and hope to one day reach those words at the end too. Best of wishes and when it is published I will be happy to read!
