It’s taken almost a year, but I am 6 pages away from having filled my notebook with the contents of part one of my novel. I am unbelievably excited and completely shocked at how very far I’ve come. My characters are so real to me, my plot line strong enough that I can see ages ahead, and my writing for once doesn’t feel like anything to be ashamed of.
I love that I chose to handwrite the entire thing. The blinking cursor on a blank screen is maddening and I’ve spent so many years journaling that this just made the most logical sense to me. Plus it gets my first draft done before I even hit the computer. I can’t wait to see this finished. I know it’s a long way to go, but Gods am I excited about it!
