Mission Accomplished!!!

I FINISHED MY PRO NOVEL JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO!!!

It felt like I was working on it forever, and I don't know if it'll ever get published, and it needs a lot of revision, but I already have ideas for that. And it's DONE!!! Which means I can check off another accomplishment in life, LOL!

Just wanted to share! We don't get many pure moments of joy in this life, so yeah! :)

Congratulations! *throws confetti*

Good on you for getting it done, Brady. I hope you do choose to publish it (and yes, of course, I mean self-publish because book contracts are evil). Because then I can read it. ;D

Have fun with the revisions!

Thanks, hon!

You're preaching to the choir about book contracts. ;)

I already have an idea what needs punching up.

Yea for you! That's quite an accompaniment. You've taken the first step to becoming a professional writer. :-)

Good for you. I agree with Mary on the self-publishing. If you want someone to look it over and help you edit, I'll happily volunteer. I have a friend looking over my fourth book and she's picking up on some things I would have overlooked, so believe me it helps to have another pair of eyes.

Thanks, sweetie! :)

I'm afraid traditional publishing doesn't welcome new writers, to be sure. They're not interested in you unless you have an agent, and agents aren't interested in you if you haven't published. Talk about a Catch-22!

Yep, rock/hard place. I've indie published all three of mine so far, and while the rewards haven't been great, it's still better than being rejected by a publisher because you're 'untested'.

Thank you! My pro road has been rocky, but I feel really good about this novel despite a ton of work yet to go. :)

You might consider some of the ebook publishers out there, as I know a number of people published through them, though I understand there's been a recent winnowing-out of those publishers.

Thanks! I'll have plenty of time to decide. I am just starting the revisions. *groan*
