I’m chuffed!

Yes, I am. Why? Because over the last couple of days I’ve written about 15,000 words. I have finished my follow up novel to RIP. Well, finished is an exaggeration. I have the basic story written _ beginning, middle and end. Whoo hoo! Of course, now I have to make the characters believable, supply lots of telling detail, throw in some red herrings and I will have a reasonable first draft. I will then start passing it around for comment but only to those able to cope with murder and mayhem.

I have entered any number of comps over the past weeks. But, there will be no news on those until the new year. I pulled out a number of short stories I’d written over the past few years and rewrote like a demon and probably screwed up the lot of them. Lol! Ah well. At least I tried.

I hope you dear readers have a happy holiday season, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Rosa

      Thanks Lynn. I have been stymied for some time with how to tie it all together, so am hugely relieved to have it done…sort of.

  2. Yay! That is worthy of celebration.

      Ta Sonz. I am going to celebrate tomorrow with some friends here at the beach…oh yeh, that’s for Xmas. Lol!

    I agree. Good on you, I can’t wait to read it either. And have fun in the longer haul of re-writing, lol, it takes me ten times as long as the first draft.

    Yair, it’ll be a bast! I actually quite like going back over it. It is always amazing how many errors I find and even more amazing how many my beta readers find.
