120,801 words and now the work begins...

Before I head to the beach today I wanted to express my exhausted joy at finishing the 1st draft of my first thriller action adventure novel. It seems a long time since I began this thing and along the way I realized other things that every writer needs to think about.
Rewrites, of course, and a reader group and an editor and cover art. Plus the ebook formatting thing.
Hopefully I will soon be able to announce that I have all, if not most of these critical elements in the bag or at least in the works but for this moment, today, I'm just happy to be able to say I finished the first draft.
So, after working and reworking the ending a few times and a long haul struggle to focus my time and energy on this wonderfully challenging craft I'm taking a couple of days to settle my little brain.

....you know where to find me....

Congrats! It's a great feeling, isn't it? I just turned my final (8th) draft over to the editor. Woo Hoo! Good luck on the temporarily painful cut/cut/cut phase! : )
