It's Done!!!!!!!!

News flash.......the very rough draft draft of A Cornish House is finished!!!! What a relief. I can now sit back and say although all 92513 may be crap it is done and it is the third complete novel I have written!!!!

Will be breaking out some bubbly tonight - in fact must go put it in the fridge. Just wanted to say thank you to all the other novel racers and other friends who have kept me going along the way. I won't say I wouldn't have done it with out you but it would have been a lot more lonely and certainly less fun. THANKS!!!!!

Have a great weekend on and all :-)

Awesome news, Liz! Congratulations. I guess his means you came in second. I'll have to jump over to the coffee break and see if anyone else tied with you.

Liz, that is fantastic news - I hope the bubbly went down a treat.
Brillant news!

liz fenwick said...

Thanks C.S., Jess, and Isabella. The bubbly was great although will confess to a bit of a headache this morning......it was a great night with good friends until the small hours :-)

It's strange not immediately switching into writing in the mourning so I am about to go tackle the weeds!

JJ said...

Liz, HUGE congratulations. You've done so well to complete the first draft. It's so absolute proof to me that there's nothing to it(!) apart from bum on seat and get writing. It's just not that easy, and you've done so well.

Was that a deliberate or accidental typo? Mourning? Are you mourning not writing? Have fun with the weeds, and well done.
