I finished my novel. Where’s the party?

 

IT’S DONE. IT’S FINISHED. I DID IT…where are the streamers? The balloons? I’ve got my life back and I’m not sure what I should do with it.

It is a tad anti-climactic. Like finishing a book and realising that’s the end of the characters you’ve followed through an intense journey but one that sucked up far more of my time.

If anything, I guess it means I don’t want to stop writing. Which is good. And I have a lot of projects to start…so perhaps it’s on to the next one. After I send this novel off to some agents (ahh reality). I think I do need to have a party…even if my book won’t give one to me :’)

 

Result:

Name: Lionhearts

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Total Word Count: 108,000 (maybe a little big :S)

 

Maybe something will come of this, either way I completed a novel and I just sent it to an agent!!

  1. I hope and wish it gets accepted at one place or another.
    And congratulations on finishing it in the first place, because being a writer
    one has to have a finished book.
    It is the one big step in to really knowing who you are as a writer.

    1. Thank you! Although I once read somewhere that to be a writer you just need to write, which I think sounds so much more motivating. But yeah, after finishing a novel the word writer feels like it has more weight to it!

      1. I do believe in the words that to be a writer you just need to write but as long it doesn’t get published the world doesn’t believe you are one, that’s what I meant.
        I write for the sake of writing so I don’t care much if I don’t have a book yet but soon enough I will.
        Good Luck once again! 🙂

    1. Thank you! 🙂 It’s just super nerve wrecking sending it – But the world has appeared to not have ended so perhaps I’ll hunt down some more agents to send it to!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!! 😀

    I don’t even have the guts to share my writing with my friends, let alone with a distinguished publisher. Kudos to you! ❤

    No matter what happens, I can't wait to read it someday. 🙂

    1. I actually find it easier with publishers…they don’t know me and I can’t see the possible boredom on their face as they read it.

      And thank you! -fingers crossed-
