How I finished my novel this morning!!!!
There aren't enough exclamation points in the world to express how excited I am!
Well, there probably are.
But I'm excited.
I mean, there's a TON of work to be done. In fact, I may very well be the proud writer of the shittiest first draft in shitty first draft history. Anne Lamott would be proud of me.
This was my NaNo novel, so as you can imagine, there are about 457 different plot directions. I threw in a 3rd character POV about half-way, when I was hitting a writer's block wall, but she's SO awesome that she needs to be worked in from the beginning.
My world-building is a JOKE!
I can't decide on one mythos!
I can't decide if I want this to be just urban fantasy, just science fiction, or if I want to GENRE BLEND! (probably that.)
But...I love my characters, I love my world, and I had some super BADASS epiphanies while I was writing the last bit. I mean, SUPER badass.
I think that's the best thing about writing--how your mind works out these amazing plot twists right before you get to them and you're like "ZOMG! That's so much better than the crap I came up with when I was trying to plot!"
So please forgive all my CAPS! I'm just SO EXCITED!
Let's all smoke cigars and celebrate the arrival of a new baby novel in the world!
Oh, and one more thing... I was going to wait until I hit 97 followers (my 2 favorite numbers), but I think finishing a MS is much more deserving of a CONTEST! So stay tuned for details!
