First Draft Finished!
I made it! I finished my first draft by the end of March. Barely and it needs a lot of work, but done!
Here's what I already know needs to fix/revised in a major way:
1. The timeline. Sweet fancy Moses, it's a mess. I think everything happens in about two days right now. NG (no good)
2. The description. As in, there isn't much. You know those stage productions where the set is basically a chair, a table and a glass of water? That's the way this book feels - but this is normal for me, so I'm not worried.
3. The heroine's dad. At this point, I'm thinking he's Daddy Jekyll/Papa Hyde. I need to decide just what is up with him.
4. It's too short. However, see above re description. This is also the normal state of a first draft of mine.
So I have a lot of work to do yet before this book is anywhere near ready to submit. But for today, I'm happy and off to take a long walk on a beautiful spring day.
