Throwing a party

Well, it's finished. Just after 5.oopm today. Of course, that is a 'first' draft. That's in commas because it isn't really a first draft, but it is the first time it has been completed. Some bits have been corrected, others re-written.

It will rest now for a couple of weeks (while I get up to speed with my final honours course), and then I will start the first re-write, along with the much more difficult drafting of a pitch to agents and/or publishers.

For now, I am going to have a lie down in a darkened room.

Terrific! Congratulations! It's such an achievement. I trust you will be drinking something fizzy and expensive soon.
