HAPPY DANCE!

I finished the first draft of Book Three! WOOT!

Clocking in at 77,500 words, it's done. The last half of the novel is probably complete crap. Then again, I got it all down in two months.

HOLY CRAP, I wrote a book in TWO MONTHS.

Heh. And to think there was a time when I was impressed that I'd written one book. Now I've got three, with a fourth wasting away into electronic dust. Note to self: pick up YA novel and finish it.

I am officially NOT WRITING ANYTHING having to do with Book Three for an entire week. At least. At the earliest, I will pick it up on Monday, November 7, to begin the revision. Meanwhile, I'll start on the query letter (oh God, here we go again) and the synopsis. Tomorrow.

Because tonight, baby, I'm drinking me some wine. BOOK THREE (draft one) IS DONE!
