Ninety Percent: A Good Number to See!

My word count is at ninety percent! That means that I'm nearly finished with the first draft of this novel. It felt sometimes like I would never see the end, but now, I can count the number of scenes in the last chapter, and know that I'll be writing those soon.

Ahhh. It feels good, and though I know I have a lot of revisions and rewrites to deal with, the satisfaction of having that first draft completed is very nice. I'd like to post a few more excerpts along the way, and I hope to get some feedback, too. But for now, it's great to look at my outline and know that typing "THE END" is definitely in sight!

Thanks for your encouragement! It helps to spur me along.

I really need to get to work on my own writing. You are doing a great job and are a very good example for me. Can't wait to read, The Miting, by Dee Yoder!
