and draft.  

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.

Congrats on finishing. That's always a plus.

My son made me take him to Divergent. I don't think he'll be dragging me to the sequels. Least believable thing about that movie: how fashionably dressed the Erudite faction was. Those brainiacs should have been dressed like big fat slobs, but no, every villain has to signal upper class elites. Hmf.
