So, I just wrote a novel.

Eternity in an Hour, first draft, is done! Almost 160,000 words, baby!

Now I have to find people to read it so I can revise it. Oh my.

But to be done with it... it's such a weird feeling. I can't believe it. I think I'm in shock.

Wow.

Haha, I was worried that the content had scared you away.

Also, I'd be happy to return the favor once you've finished your revisions! I enjoyed those opening chapters of Eternity and was looking forward to seeing more.

It's a deal!

I'm torn between sending Eternity out to a few choice readers now or later or even later... the first 'later' being after I revise the first four chapters, which are very out of whack with the rest, and the 'even later' being after I revise the whole thing once. I'll probably opt for 'later.'

Also, have you revised Unmanned recently? I don't want to start an older copy if you have a newer one available. I think the last one I have is 9/22/10.

*nod* I advocate trying to get it as close to "perfect" as you can before sending it out, that way critters are less likely to point out problems that you're already aware of.

That sounds like the most up-to-date version. I've been putting off writing recently (currently in a funk) so I haven't done much work on any of my novels. :\

Thank you! I'm pretty proud of myself, even if that does sound cocky.

How have you been? It's been awhile!

The last few months I've been traveling pretty much every single week and stressing about job interviews. Hoping to find some time to write again soon; I'm inspired to actually finish Animus before I (hopefully) become a professor and have no free time for anything ever again.
