The first draft is complete!!! Woo!

I gave myself a self-imposed deadline of Christmas to finish it and I did. I am now in desperate need of a lie down. Or at least my fingers need a bloody good rest.

As predicted, illness befell the house. We dropped like flies - first the 4 year old, then me and then the 9 year old. So far only The Husband has escaped. Luckily I only felt ill for a day and it started in the afternoon after I'd done my writing (very considerate stomach bug).

Now, what shall I do with my free time? Oh, I know. Wrap that great big stack of Christmas presents *weeps*


  1. Congrats on finishing your first draft!

    Hope everyone in your house gets better for Christmas. If I don't talk to you before, have a great one!

    1. Thanks, Kyra.

      Everyone's much better now. Just waiting for The Husband to topple!

      Hope you have a fab Christmas x

  2. Congrats on finishing your first draft. I'm 1/4 a way through mine and am surprised I've written so much.

    My husband and one of my sons were ill with possibly the flu this weekend. At least it wasn't as bad as last time they were sick for Christmas.

    1. Thanks :-)

      25% is brilliant. It's always a relief to reach a major milestone.

      I hope your family is better now. I had flu a couple of Christmases ago. I didn't feel very merry that year!
