It's 12:34 AM on Monday, May 30th and I am OFFICIALLY DONE with my ms, BM.
Tomorrow (well, technically today) it goes off to my crit partners.
This book has spent the last seven months eating my soul. It is SO NICE to be DONE.
Ohmygosh, SO NICE.
Because my thoughts are a little kablooey right now, and I'm a little tired from dancing to Lady Gaga for the last ten minutes straight, I'll keep this brief.
I started BM on Nov 1 2010 for NaNoWriMo. I didn't win NaNoWriMo. I finished the first draft at about 26K-- 12K in the first act, 12K in the second act, and 2K of synopsis/notes for the third act.
I then spent Dec-May revising the crap out of said novel. (Seriously-- I tried to take out all the crappy parts.)
I'm not positive that it is any good, but right now I think it is the best thing I've written. I may just be delirious from mind melding with my computer, though.
Seven months. Thirty-eight chapters. 58,488 words.
And holy crap, I LOVE THIS STORY. So much.
Okay. I have to do... something now. I don't know what, but it might involve food or back flips or more dancing or oh jeeze, I don't even know. It won't be sleep though. Definitely not sleep.
I FINISHED MY BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!
