I just finished typing the first draft of my new novel, Siren’s Call!!!
This is the novel that I went to New Orleans for. I started it while I was living there, but I couldn’t finish it at that point. I needed to let the experience deepen for a while, and I needed to mature more as a writer.
This draft is really, really, broken. There are so many things that I need to fix in it before I send it to my first readers.
Fortunately, I took notes while I was writing the novel, so I already have lots of ideas, as well as kind of a plan for how to fix it.
Despite how broken I think this draft is, I still love this novel. It’s been one of the easiest novels for me to write. I really didn’t have any issues with it until the last couple of chapters.
So yay! The first draft is done! I have the month of July to fix it. I have a lot of other things I must do in July as well, but I don’t feel panicked. It’s a lot of work, but I feel confident that I can do it.
Ask me again how I feel about the novel once I’ve fixed it, but for now, I feel as though this could be one of my best works.
