Book 1 - Almost Reached The End

The third draft is going well and if I reach out, I can almost reach the end. I'm quite confidant that it will be completed in the next few days or by the end of the week at the latest. Famous last words, eh? Cue disaster that leaves me unable to continue.

The third draft has taken me by surprise because I am actually enjoying it. There were times during the previous draft when I couldn't have despised my book more. It was hard work but it seems to have paid off and I'm finding my book a pleasure again. I will be sad when it's finished. And happy of course. Very happy.

The next step is start submitting to agents. And that's both scary and exciting.


  1. Fantastic progress! Isn't it great when you actually start to like your novel again... I always HATE the second draft.

  2. Congratulations and good luck with your submissions.

  3. Talli - I hated the second draft. It was much harder than I thought it was going to be and seemed never ending.

    Debs - Thank you. I can't wait to send it off but I'm also dreading the rejections. But I won't give up this time. I hope :-P
