It was an hard night last night, but 7900 words later, at 1am, I emerged victorious. The final leg of the journey was intense, exhausting, and worth every word. RELEASE officially has a complete first draft, and by Thursday, I’ll be starting edits and revisions. Yet another battle begins…
This book is something different for me…something special. There are characters within that I’ve had the joys of creating, and one of them in particular has become a favorite. I have not enjoyed writing the first draft of a book as much I have this one. This book was a roller coaster for me, and I am beyond excited to share it with you.
RELEASE means a lot to me right now, and I imagine it will will only mean more to me once I get into revisions. I can flesh out the characters better, smooth out the flow, and bring things to life in a way a first draft just cannot accomplish. It’s true I’ll be pushing myself to get these next set of revisions done in a few weeks, but I have to. I can’t not be eye deep in this story. It has it’s claws in me, and each word tears me further into it’s depths.
In a few short months, this book will touch many hands: Beta readers, two editors, beta readers again, and then finally, after all this hard work has come to a head, I’ll click the publish button. I hope when that day comes, you’ll be waiting on the other side of the monitor for it.
