I’ve finished the first draft of my novel. Look:
Even though there’s a lot of work still to do, I was surprised by the tingle of excitement when I picked it up from the printer. I bought a new folder for it: something zingy to brighten the shelf as I edit and revise over the next few months.
Onto the start of the next phase then, to shape it into something submittable for my MA and beyond. I can’t wait.
