I wanted to write this while the endorphins are still flowing through my veins. Just an hour ago, I finished the first draft of Weak for Him! OMG OMG OMG OMG! ::insert crazy squee sounds here::
I’ve been plugging away at this for about 3 months and finally, tonight, I wrote those last words : the end.
I had to tuck my bottom lip in, hold back tears, and sigh deeply as to not bust out in tears. (I am an ugly crier and people were around!) The only other time that I had felt like this was whenever I finished a long bike ride, and people cheered me on as I crossed the finished line. Every night that I had stayed up late, every day that I didn’t feel like writing, various notebooks, sticky notes, lessons learned, chatting with all my facebook friends (love y’all), and everything else I went through was entirely worth it. When I wrote those two final words, I knew that I had broken the statistics.
I know that this whole process isn’t really over yet. I still have to do an initial read through, send to my critique partner, send to my 3 betas, send to the editor, all while doing rewrites but it’s still something to celebrate!
These are the actual words, right after I typed them:
I will also have my official cover reveal on Nov 6th, so if anyone would like to sign up to be a part of that, I would love you forever! 🙂
Fin – For now! 🙂
