Yay! I got the first draft done on SEASONS IN THE MIST, my (probably unsellable) medieval time-travel romance. My goal was to have it done by the end of the year, and I wrote "the end" on January 1. Can't get much closer than that!
I'll take 2-4 weeks to do the second-draft, which for this book means a complete read-through, spotting goofs, gaffes, "huh?" places, and all of my myriad bad writing-habits. Then I assess for story, add more content as necessary, and consider it pretty well done.
Then the scary part...sending it out into that Big, Bad Publishing World. Don't ask me if I look forward to this step in the process.
But I feel as though I've told one of the stories of my heart, and finishing it feels really, really good.
