Finally finished - now for the hard part


I have finished the first draft of my first-ever romance novel.

It's very rough but I am thrilled to have finally knocked out almost 49,000 words.

It felt good at first.

It's taken me half my life to get to this point, but now the hard work begins. I have to convince someone my story is worth publishing.

It means I have to now write a perfect synopsis and pitch, as well as finesse the story.

If only life was a piece of cake,
Easy to mix and a cinch to bake

(My rhyming couplet is inspired by my youngest daughter's English homework assignment)

And so to bed.
