Today I finished my third, and hopefully final draft of the novel I have been writing since April 25 2008. It is the end of a very short era, most of which was spent huddled over a laptop in a messy corner of my bedroom.
Writing this novel got me through a lot of hard times.
I feel there may be more to come though. (That is, both hard times and novels).
On Friday, I'm sending it to the first place on my list. I didn't quite get to 60 000 words but I got very close. I don't want to force it. It just felt finished. There are some typos in the final edition apparently. I'll fix them. Eventually. Or right now.
I feel a bit...lost.
