This was me the last few days…
Okay, a lot less evil and a little less tired looking, but you get the idea.
I had come to a pretty bad standstill in my WIP (but I have a deadline) so I pulled out my polka-dotted notebook and set to work writing longhand.
For some reason when I’m uninspired, distracted, or fatigued, switching mediums can be really helpful, and this time I was blessed to be able to just write and write and write.
Last night, I finished draft one!!! I can’t tell you how many times my characters surprised me in that last chapter and how much I nerded out bringing some things from the beginning back around. XD
I’m so excited to have this done, and once I type it all into the computer, I’ll begin reading through it and doing the big edits. 😀
I kept telling my family, “I finished my draft! I finished my draft!” As I got more tired and more excited, apparently the way I pronounce “draft” is a bit more like “jraft”, so I guess I finished a “giraffe”. XD
(And since my book is longer in some places than others and a little bit spotty in others, the metaphor works, right? 😀 )
I can’t wait until I can tell you all more about this book. For now, just know that there’s a lot of cheesecake in it. 😀
