IN WHICH I AM DELIRIOUS WITH GLEE AND/OR RELIEF.

I felt that, because I’d filmed the PANIC end, I would film the JOY/RELIEF end, too.

It’s actually 79,640 words.

And oh boy do I have my work cut out for me in revisions, BUT.

IT’S A DRAFT.

IT’S THE DRAFTIEST FIRST DRAFT IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD OR AT LEAST DRAFTS.

BUT THAT’S OKAY.

    Aw, congratulations! Best. Feeling. Ever! Your vlog is fabulous and I was grinning the whole way through watching it 🙂

      Hahaha thank you :p I really should, you know, brush my hair or something, but I promised on Twitter I would vlog the moment I typed THE END. I am true to my word :p

    YAY, congrats on finishing your draft!!!!

    For some reason, I can’t see your vlog today 😦 Do you have a direct link to YouTube or wherever it’s stored?

    Yaaay! Congrats! =)
    I liked the analogy of drafts to clay–it helped me understand that drafts are a bit simpler than I imagined (and by simple, I mean they aren’t glorious things that are at all close to the finished product, which is what I had initially assumed. Haha).

      As heavily as I tend to depend on Princess Bride analogies, this is one of those times where the clay one works best. It’s just a matter of getting that material so you have SOMETHING to work with. The moment I type THE END, even on the draftiest draft in the world, there’s this huge swell of relief because I have SOMETHING.

    Congrats, V! That feeling is the best. (I will unabashedly admit I have only finished ONE novel.) Can’t wait for future updates with clapping and tears! >:D

    • veschwab says:

      Thank you, JP! And finishing a novel, whether it’s your first or your fifth, is a BIG deal, so congrats :)))

  8. I am proud of you and your draft! *showers gold stars everywhere*

  9. I’M SO HAPPY FOR YOU!
    Now, you deserve the best relaxation day 🙂
    The important thing is that you have something solid to work with now, right? (I know you agree with me).
    Finishing this draft is an amazing accomplishment.

  10. Congrats! I am so excited for you!
