DONE! A THOUSAND TIMES DONE!

6 Jun

It is over.

that is all I can say. As of 11:08 Sunday, June the 5th  2011 the first draft of BTE is done.

I know I cut it a little close… i only had what? 50 minutes left before I didn’t make my deadline. That’s so typically me. LOL, but at least it’s done.  FINALLY DONE!

I really can not express to you the huge relief of being finished. So instead of  rambling for 20 pages about it I leave you with the final sentence of BTE:

I squeeze Jett’s hand, feeling my heart go out to him, a tiny beat in this too big world. But a beat that counts. Every. Beat. Counts.

*Claps and does a happy dance*

It’s not that great of a sentence, but come on, it is the last one!

And now, I will take two weeks off BTE… heck maybe three! haha, good luck to you all on your writerly ventures, I must now go and throw some glitter in the air!

    Congratulations!
    Completing a first draft is a great achievement; you deserve the time off!
    That last sentence is fairly good, actually; I like it, at least. Keep up the great work!

      Ha thanks… They need some work. But, you know, first draft and all i’d give myself a B.

      LOL

    May I make a VERY QUICK I PROMISE suggestion? End it with “a beat that counts.” cut to black, curtain ends, over.

      I’ll try that out in draft two. Thanks for the feedback. Though, as I said, NOTHING will be the same in draft two. So I will probably end with a different sentence, but it does sound better that way. Thanks!

    Nice! Congrats on finishing. Must feel great.

      It does. It also feels kind of weird not having to get my word count down everynight. haha

    Congratulations! I have currently hit one-tenth of the way through my latest project, and it still seems like a long way to go! Don’t worry if you think your first draft is awful (referring to your post before this one), most first drafts are pretty non-perfect. That’s what editing is for!

      Thanks 😀

      I try to remind myself of that but, sometimes I don’t listen very well!

    Congratulations! C’mon, you have to be majorly proud, keep throwing that glitter in the air! 😀 You definitely deserve the time off! The last sentences are awesome, too!

      Thanks! Though… I think I will need to buy more glitter, it is all gone now! haha
