Since the day I started writing my first novel, I really had no idea it would come this far. I thought I’d give up, burn it or bash my laptop to bits, but actually I’ve never felt angry at my book.
I have had so many long gaps between writing it and editing it, and those gaps have been useful to me as a writer. They’ve given me thinking pockets of time to fix the storyline in my head. You see, I see the book as a movie in my head, so I can re-jig things and then go back to the words, words, words…
So, yeah, I’m very close now to completing it and it feels very emotional. I have some chapters to write and a LOT of editing, but the end is in sight and it feels pretty damn good!
Anyone else almost finished out there?
