75 percent done with my first novel!

It's a non-money goal, I know, but a life goal nonetheless. Today I hit 75,000 words and officially 75 percent finished with my first novel!

    Congrats on keeping going. I tried NaNoWriMo but my novel was so awful I gave up after 12 days and 22,000 words

    My sisters are both writers. One of them did the novel in a month first draft. Now she needs to edit it. Good for you, congratulations!

    I am using a handy book that was designed for Book in a Month people, but realistically, with two kids, one month wasn't going to cut it. It's been about 3 months, but it's actually fun. I hope to have my first draft done in another month, then I'm taking a break, and then revising. When it's good enough I'll start looking for an agent!

    Text is Interesting article and Link is
    Interesting article that may or may not be relevant to you. The trend is going towards e-book readers of some kind. It's good to know how to e-publish, especially if you can do it on your own.

    Just trying to help.

    I'm going to try the traditional route first, then the Amazon program for new authors, and then self-publishing.

    Congratulations! That is a great accomplishment... keep rolling.
