[Blog] Happy Dance

HEADER

I’m really excited. I finished the first chapter of the second draft* of my novel, and I’m happy with it. For now. And by for now I mean until draft three, because if I don’t keep going I’m gonna get stuck here. Again.

But.

All that’s beside the point. Because right now I’ve got a complete unit of this beast of a story that I’m actually pretty happy with, and I’ve got at least a few bones of the structure of the rest of it, and it’s all been a wonderful boost to my morale.

Sure, there’s hours and hours of work left, and I’ve still got plot holes to discover and fill and worlds to build and work the kinks out of and characters to meet and coax onto the page. But right now, I’m just going to enjoy the fact that I’ve managed to scale this first peak and, hopefully, use the momentum to keep right on going.
