Done!

A full draft, anyway. I've had a marathon 8 days in which I wrote more than 10,000 words. Please refer to my picometer, to the right. 100% done. Now the real work begins, whipping my novel into the best shape it can be. Sending it to bootcamp, perhaps. I think I might take the weekend off. Here's my reward:

Absolutely inspirational, Rachael. You must be feeling wonderful. And oh yes! Angel's Cut is a wonderful way to relax. I am really looking forward to it.

Marianne said...

Yay!

I absolutely think that a weekend off is in order.

Congratulations!

Congratulations! Have a great weekend off!

Congrats Rachael, and of course this means for all of us, that we're a bit closer to reading it now.

Here's another good way for you to celebrate on this lovely sunny Saturday morning (6 June) in Chch: get a copy of today's Press, and read Sarah Quigley's 'Writer's Eye' in the book section, D11. It is absolutely superb - her best form of late. And if you're sensible like me, you'll read it with a fresh espresso in one hand, a warm scone with quince jelly in the other :)

That is epic. You could turn out a novel in 70 or 80 days at that rate. :-)

Congrats.

Rachael King said...

Ha ha Rod. That would discount all the months I need to THINK about the book to get me to the point of being able to churn out those words.

Wow, well done. I've just come back to blogland on a 5 week break from class and this is an inspiration. I need to do a lot of whipping into shape too. :)
