I did it...finished the first draft of my first novel
Two posts in one day. In my last post I gave you an excerpt from my first mystery novel, "Not a Whisper". Today I wrote over 7k words and finished my first draft!!! Over 79k words total, now the real work begins, edits. My first run through will fix typos, missing words, add description (I'm still learning how to SHOW, not TELL) and maybe fix some POV (point of view) issues.
I don't know how quickly I'll get through the first run through because on November 1st I'll start writing my next novel, a romance tentatively titled as "Home Again". It will be based on my short story, "Lost and Found" which will be the prequel.
Wish me luck...I hope I enjoy writing this one as much as I've enjoyed writing "Not a Whisper".
