Finished the 1st Draft
I surprised myself last Thursday when I finished the first draft of a book that I've worked on for over a year. I thought I had two days left, and then I realized I had just a bit more to go to finish that draft.
I started it over a year ago. I didn't have a job, so I thought I'd be able to finish it in 3 months. Life happens, but I kept plugging away at it. That is something I learned from Thomas Kidd--he writes a great newsletter on writing and publishing. His goal is 1000 words per day. I kept at it with a specific amount I had to do each day.
The moral of they story is to keep writing and you'll get finished.
I'll post later on the topic and when I think I may be finished later.
