73.4K out of 55K later, the first draft of my Regency romance novel is done.
Frankly, this was an Attack Book: my first brainstorming filter post about it was in the 13th of February, when I had half a synopsis written for it, so from conception to (rough draft) completion it’s definitely taken less than 2 months. I don’t think I’ve ever gone from concept to book in that little time before.
Now to polish it up a bit and send it to the agent, who will hopefully be able to sell it. Ideally for lots of money. :)
In celebration of finishing, I went and watched Divergent, which wasn’t any better than I expected it to be. It wasn’t quite bad, it just wasn’t exactly good, and it was weakened by the inevitable comparisons to Hunger Games. It primarily made me think I really should go ahead and write up the proposal for the post-apocalyptic dystopian YA I’ve had an idea for for years…
In, you know. My copious free time.
