This weekend I finished a first draft of my WIP. All I can say is:
It took me five months and a whole range of emotions to get here. But instead of telling you about it, how about I show you (classic writer technique, eh)? Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, may I present:
The Adventures of SuperAuthor: Defender of the Written Word, Owner of the Snazzy Neurosis-Mobile
One crisp January morning, SuperAuthor woke up with an idea. Scratch that. An IDEA.
One minute later.
Two days later.
One week later.
Shaken yet defiant, SuperAuthor calmly assessed the situation and drew up a logical plan to defeat the dastardly foe.
She hated the outline, but she slowly trudged through it. Bit by bit. Scene by scene.
She had a mini-celebration when the outline was done.
Day by day.
Scene by scene.
Until one day...
The First Draft Was Done!
She decided to set it aside for a few weeks and revisit it again with a fresh eye...
On next week's installment of SuperAuthor...The Second Draft
Two Weeks Later
