I FINISHED MY FIRST DRAFT OF MY FIRST EVER NOVEL!!!! :) :) :)

I've done short stories. I've done poems. I've done songs. I've done articles, and a couple scripts. I've even written a REALLY bad rap when I was younger.

Never have I completed a novel.

Now comes the fun part of re-writing....BUT I FINISHED WRITING A NOVEL!!!!!! :D

Thanks everyone! It's a great feeling and an enormous relief the get this monkey on my back...and that means no tattoo. Not that I'm against them. I love Miami Ink and those other shows. Just not keen on having them on me.

But thanks again everyone!

Since inseption to end of first draft...about a year and a half...but in reality, after I lit a fire under my keister with my tattoo deadline, I finished it in about 3 months. You really need to focus on one of these.

But I learned a lot of things about myself while writing it...I'll start a thread later in Novels all about it when it's not so late...but the most important is sometimes you've got to just put your head down and plow through to the end.

Genre: I'd classify it as Speculative Thriller if there is such a genre...but there's a little bit of sci fi and a lil' bit epic in 'er as well.

Word Count: Dunno yet. Haven't got it into electronic form completely yet. All I know is that I filled a 350 page Hilroy spiral notebook longhand. So whatever that converts to. :)
