I'm Done! I'm Done!

That is...I am done with my first draft of the book. I still have a lot of editing to do, but I feel so relieved to have the entire story written out from start to finish. I have had it in my head for four years now and have been writing it for the last two years. It is so nice to get it out of my head and on paper now (or computer to be technically correct).

It was so surreal to  finally finish it. I typed the last sentence of my book and instantly felt a wave of emotion. I had done it! I have accomplished one of my life goals that I have had since I was twelve years old. I just wish it hadn't taken me so long to finish. I'll just have to try to convince myself that my older age has made me wiser and given me more experiences in which I could relate to in my writing.

I need to start editing! What I probably will do is relish a few more moments of feeling accomplished before I dig in and cringe as I read grammatical errors and find small holes in my plot. Once again I will try to convince myself that with each proofreading of my story, the better I will be making it.
