I've just finished my first draft of GIVE ME TIME. I'm shaking and exhausted, but the first draft is DONE!

Better go and have a lie down now....

Have a good weekend everyone!

Yippee!!

LOL! I finished my first draft on Wednesday night, but only posted about it on BloggersWithBookDeals, so onoy BWBD members will be able to confirm, and the wordcounter on my blog ain't no use cos I left it as "unfinished". I was thinking I'd do one quick line edit before declaring it as finished and announcing it here.

So I reckon you can rightfully claim yourself the winner, Flowerpot. Well done!

Woo Hoo! Well done. I'm about 40,000 words short as yet. But getting there.

Cor, look at that race, it was neck and neck - but Flowerpot gets it on the photo-finish! Very well done, and I hope you have a suitably celebratory weekend ahead. Your prize is a how-to book of your choice, so pick one out and email me and I'll get it ordered. Congratulations!

Flowerpot said...

Rather than say it several times, THANK YOU ALL for your kind congratulations and comments.

Clare - I think we should be joint first as you finished first really. How about a joint prize?

Zinnia - I can't see your email address on your blog. Mine is flower.pot@btinternet.com - could you email me yours? Many thanks.

Clare Sudbery said...

Yes, drink to me!

I'm planning a bit of spit and polish of mine over next week or two, so not sure when I'll declare 1st draft officially done. Had a bit of a read-through of first chap yesterday though, and was pleasantly surprised. Am pleased with it. Yay!

Flowerpot said...

Clare - good for you! Mine needs LOADS of spit and polish but I'm not thinking about that yet!

A. Writer said...

Sorry I'm a little late! But really well done!

It's a great feeling isn't it!

Helen Shearer said...

Woo hoo! Congratulations. Wish I had your motivation!

Flowerpot said...

a.writer and helen - it's a good feeling but also makes me feel very bereft!

Clare Sudbery said...

Ah no Flowerpot, don't worry, my book needs a LOT of work before it'll be fit for the eyes of agents, publishers, etc. It'll probably go through at least another three drafts. No, I just want to clean up typos and non-sequiturs before laying it aside, so that when I pick it up again to read through with a fresh eye, I won't be needlessly distracted by surface errors.

DK Leather said...

oh how wonderful - well done to BOTH of you! :-) x
