I decided to spend my Memorial Day finishing up the editing on my novel. Actually, I started with the plan to just edit a few chapters, but I went ahead and did the last four. And with that, it's done. Completely done. The story is done, the words are done, the characters are done and I can now figure out what comes next.

I'm not sure if I want to put it out there for some feedback or not, honestly. I don't want to change a thing. But am I ready to put it up on Smashwords for sale? I don't want to prolong this thing anymore. It just feels like it's complete to me now - I can't describe the feeling.

It nearly took me a year to finish the thing, but I have such an amazing sense of achievement coursing through me now. Even if it sucks, I can now add "wrote a novel" among the things I've accomplished. And being as it's something I never even had on my bucket list or on my radar, as it's something I could never imagining even doing, I can't explain the source of pride I feel right now.

My next course of action is to read the Smashwords style guide and work on formatting what I have. I also need to come up with a cover. I have a few ideas, so it's just a matter of opening Photoshop and running with it, I suppose.

But it all comes back down to this: I DID IT! And I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] nuchtchas for telling me about NaNoWriMo and convincing me to do it last year.
