Third Draft Completed

I have just finished the third draft of my novel. I'm so excited!!! *jumps up and down waving hands in air like demented puppet* It will need at least one more draft - but I really think, hope, think just one more - before it's ready to send to agents. But this still feels like a major milestone, and I'm very very pleased. It's been an intensive week of work, and I've seen very little of the sunshine - or of Top Bloke, who I have been neglecting dreadfully - but it's paid off. And if all goes well I could even be submitting around the beginning of November. Fingers crossed!

Am off to do a victory lap round my room, and will then try to provide entertaining conversation over dinner without disappearing into an imaginary world in my head every two minutes as I fear I have been doing rather too often lately. Luckily for me, Top Bloke is wonderfully tolerant and loving and supportive. Oh, and I've just looked in my crystal ball and seen a Very Large Glass Of Wine. I think it could be for me...

YIPPEE!!!!!
