I hate clickbait; So Imma just say it: I finished my book. Dudes! I finished my book! I wrote all the way to “the end” of Winded Embers.
I have poured lots of time and earl grey into this project. And I will just say, the payoff was
really enjoyable. Despite having an outline, you never really
KNOW how a book is going to end until it does. The ending satisfied my several
years length battle with the English language.
I cried (does that make me a loser? Crying at the end of my
own book? I don’t even care right now because I loved
The novelty of this step might wear off eventually (I plan to do this book writing thing for the rest of my life, God-willing). But not yet, baby!
Right now, I am excited.
This is my first novel-length work that
a book. There are monsters, heroes, epic battles, clever bad guys, and adorable magic creatures.
This is not the first time I have thrown 50
thousand+ words at this story
premise (more like 200k lets be real). However, this is the first time it actually
produced a readable story.
|It even read like a real-life book when I put it on my kindle.|
So pretty! Yay me! I finished my book!
Now, the questions
that I usually get right about now are
things like, “where can I get it?” or “what’s next?” etc.
So, Here’s the skinny: a finished manuscript does not a book make. This thing needs some revision (for
realsies people). But I have been working on this project for about 5 years (Yeah, I know). We need a break from each other.
Thanks for reading my announcement and joining in the excitement with me. If you are following my writing journey please leave a comment and let me know (or subscribe to my email list so you
don't miss any updates).
I know people are reading, my metadata says so. But I
have no idea who you people are. And that's just a shame. Don't you think?
