75 percent done with my first novel!

August 15th, 2010 at 11:05 am

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! Are you editing as you go or are you 75% done with the first draft?

    Way to go!

    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!

    Congrats! And you never know, it could make some money.

    By the way, I don't know if you're interested in publishing for Apple's iBook, but in case you are.

    Congratulations! I'm stuck on Chapter Two, myself. I really need to get crackin'.

    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!

  13. Broken Arrow Says:

    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.

  14. ThriftoRama Says:

    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.
