Okay, so I’m totally thrilled to say that I finished my most recent WIP! I came in at around 72,000 words which is about where I figured I’d end.
The story has been a labor of love and has taken me a lot longer than any of my others to write (5 months). So, I’ll be diving into edits and apply crits from my crit group (who are all FABULOUS). Then I’ll do some more edits and send it off to my betas.
It’s so awesome to come to the end of a story. And I’ll admit that I teared up. I haven’t had one of my own stories do that to me before (LOL).
So YAY, I got to type THE END! I’m hoping to have this bad boy ready to start query by the end of October. Although, I’m still waiting to hear on fulls/partials sitting with agents for my last story (LOL). So today I’ll be doing some edits, posting more of the end chapters for critique, and maybe taking a look at my query blurb.
Then, I’ll take a 2 week break before diving into my next YA story (which is a supernatural thriller).
