I have finally typed a writer’s two favorite words.

First draft is complete, and my mind has entered a tug of war with itself, trying to decide between brainstorming the next novel, or a short story or three, or getting right to work on rewrites and edits–though, I should probably wait a few weeks for that, it is so hard to see the truth with the sun in your eyes.

But the feeling of satisfaction is so intense! I have tried and failed so many times, that it is quite the euphoric sensation to finally complete a project like this. Now, I know I can do it. Now I’m confident I can do it again, and again forever.

Even if nothing comes of this first novel, I have done it, and there is value in that!
