I FINISHED MY NOVEL!!

Post  Maggie on Wed May 11, 2011 1:25 pm

This time, it's not an April Fool's joke. I FINISHED MY NOVEL!!! Just wrote the last words a few minutes ago and grinned as I pressed 'save'. Draft 1 is complete at 72,075 words, which I already know will change a zillion times.

But right now, it's pure excitement.

Anyway, I'm off to read Splashback. I'M SO HAPPY!

I already said this on Twitter, but...EEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Razz That's so exciting and awesome! And you totally convinced me to get Scrivener with that screenshot. *goes to purchase if not too expensive. If too expensive, asking mother for it as a graduation present. Very Happy*

LIZZY THIS IS SO EXCITING OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait until it's awesome and beautiful and perfect. Which I'm sure it already is, but awesome/beautiful/perfect for a first draft is different.

No matter what, finishing the first draft is the best feeling ever.

@Amanda Full screen shots are shift-command-3. Partial screen shots are shift-command-4, and you select the part of the screen you want to screen shot.
