I FINISHED MY NOVEL!!!!!
Here are my stats, if you care.
- 132 pages
- 79,984 words, 7,397 of which were done between today and yesterday (Just shy of 80k!)
- 18 chapters
- 435,319 characters (Letters and semicolons and what have you – not humans.)
- 174 KB of memory
All of which, sadly, needs to be insanely edited. Just imagine, though! It only took me two-thirds of a 9 oz bag of Mint M&Ms, which means that I have the rest of that bag, plus my 30 oz bag I got on clearance the other day, specifically reserved for editing. There’s a light at the end of this tunnel. (Unfortunately, I think I’ll need another package of Meadow Mint Hobbit Tea before long…. Oh, well.)
I thought I’d show you my reaction in pictures. : )
New Year’s Eve came and went and I woke up on New Year’s Day feeling like this….
|“I’m not done with my novel yet and it’s 2013. I am angry.”|
|Frustration and exhaustion. Not much sadness until late last night when I realized that I was leaving Alec and Nikki. (Not for long, mind you. More later.)|
Then, I finally finished it and felt like this.
|Minus the really evil feeling, that is.|
Then, I felt like dancing.
|With some keys. : )|
Now, I just feel like this.
I also thought you’d be a little remotely interested in some pictures I put together for my two main characters, Nikki and Alec.
|Nikki’s personality is a mix of Amy Dorrit, Rapunzel, Christine Daae, Margaret Hale, Marguerite St. Just, and Mary Smith. She kind of looks like all of them combined, but I haven’t nailed down an actress yet.|
Well, I need to go find some food. I’ve been eating M&Ms and drinking water out of my souvenir cup from The Hobbit all day and feel in need of some sunflower seeds.
