Declaration of First Draft

It's a draft. Not a wrap, not a done thing, not even a draft with full inclusion of all scenes, since I need to add two or three scenes featuring my vaguest, and therefore in-for-a-rewrite character. It also calls for a sequel. 

But it's a first draft, a novel with a beginning, a middle, and an end, standing at 101.500 words.

Insert: Fireworks. Fluffy Bunnies. Also sprach Zarathustra. Pictures of pilgrims coming to the end of El Camino. Chocolate. Dancing of the funky-flamenco-disco on top of Mount Everest.

It's only a draft, I know. The real work begins now, they say. But this is the first time in seven years I've finished a novel draft, and it feels exhilarating.

Only a first draft? ONLY?? Never say ONLY. The vast majority of those who write will never get that far. You've accomplished a great thing!

Woo, spaklies!!! (Forgot that on my celebration list.) And to be sure, it feels VERY far from an 'only'-achievement *g*

Eh, possibly I forgot them 'cause they're really called *sparklies* Although spaklies might make the celebration interesting too.:-)
