Work-In-Progress: Finished!!!

Weighing in at 245 pages, 68,399 words--a completed YA novel manuscript. Yay!!! You can see this week's vlog at www.mybignose.blogspot.com (if you happen to be reading this elsewhere):




Now I'm itching to revise.

  2. I can tell you're excited to be done. I love that huge grin on your face and how you're holding up your MS. You have a lot to be proud of!

  4. Yahoo!! So did you try to set a goal to be done by this time or were just doing a weekly word goal? I just can't get over how quickly you whipped out that book! You're a rockstar.

  5. (OH! And I love the symbolism of you sitting on the couch instead of at your desk.) :) Hooray, you're done!

  6. I didn't set any word count goals, but I wrote every day. I had a really detailed synopsis to follow which helped me maintain momentum and not get lost on tangents.

    I did want to finish before my extended family arrives for the holidays... so that motivated me too.
