And I’m done! Slogged a bit in these past few days but finally I made it!
Total word count: 51,284 words
I’m done with the first draft of my book with chapters in details and scenes in super details. Now, I’ll be joining Camp NaNo for editing my first draft and simultaneously writing the second one. Hopefully, I’ll be done by 15th of July… fingers crossed!
I’m so, so, so thankful to #JuNoWriMo for making it possible for me to write the entire first draft in 1 month (considering that I’ve never written anything of this magnitude before!) I’ll be sending out my second draft to two of my proofreader cum beta reader friends (Willow and Dagny) by the end of July. Then I’ll be editing the book again after receiving reports from them. So there is a lot of work still remaining… Hopefully I’ll be able to get my manuscript to the publishers by September…
I’d like to thank Vishal for being such a sweetheart and helping me with everything. I know I was a crazy, emotional mess this month and this book wouldn’t have been possible without you! Love you always!!! ❤
I’d also like to thank all my dear fellow writers at JuNoWriMo (you guys are the best!) I met a lot of beautiful writers here and made a lot of wonderful friends. They helped me stick to my goals and all the pep talks were really helpful! I’ll be dropping by JuNo’s page every once in a while even after the WriMo is over…
