View Full Version : Finally finished my novel!

Boy does this feel good! For the last two years, I've tried to write a novel that I would think fit for publication, and I believe this is it. It's a fantasy book completed at 133,000 words, and I've completed editing half of it in three days. I've been waiting eight years since I started writing for this. I can't believe it's finally happened.

I am so happy for you! Keep up the good work :)

Eight years? And you're fourteen? Brilliant.

Seriously, congratulions. That's an awesome achievement for someone of any age, not just a youngster. Not that you're a youngster. Well, sort of. Comparitively.

Ai yi yi. I need to go write.

Thank you all for your kind comments. It does feel incredibly rewarding after putting so much effort into something. It really feels like I have something to call my own.

Congratulations...It does feel good to finish doesn't it? I actually finished a novel back in March :) It was a good feeling knowing I had accomplished something.

Now you know what the next steps are, right?
1) Research agents and publishing houses
2) Submit a query to one of each
3) Write another manuscript in the meantime

Go get 'em!
