Wednesday and Writing: On a Tuesday

Are we there yet?

Yes we are! I am finally the owner of a REALLY ROUGH completed manuscript, 116,306 words or 416 pages. Of course, 10% of this will be removed in editing/re-writing. But I have a complete story from the beginning of a crazy messed up situation till then end where it all plays out, after 4 months! I'm so excited. Don't get me wrong, I fully expect to have three or four re-writes and I'm hoping with all my being I can have a polished product by the winter conference. But all the same, I finished a 416 page manuscript. This is only my second attempt at a full length manuscript. The writing is much better than the first time around and the length has doubled. While it isn't a victory in print yet, it's a victory of sorts.

Thanks again to everyone who has helped with this. And now to answer why I'm doing Wednesday and Writing on a Tuesday night. Well, that's simple. I couldn't resist this post and I have something extra special for tomorrow. Hope to see you there
