I finished the first draft of SOMETHING MORE THAN NIGHT this evening. Hooray!
It’s very exciting, typing up the final pages of a manuscript. Granted, this is only the fourth time I’ve done it. But it’s still a happy thrill. I hope it never loses its appeal.
There’s still so much work left to do on this thing…like make it coherent, and readable, and perhaps even find a way to make it not suck. But that’s rewriting. Rewriting is almost always less taxing than writing. At least now I have something to hammer on, rather than a blank page. But that’s a task to tackle another day.
For now, seeing as how it’s almost 8pm and I haven’t eaten a single thing all day—excepting a cup of coffee around 6:15 this morning—I am going to take the rest of the night off.
I think it’s a pizza night.
