Got all the way through the fourth re-write of my WIP, Nine Days, this afternoon! It still needs editing, but I'm just so happy to have the story all connected up and making sense from beginning to end. Break out the bubby and dancing boys!
Good for you! Making sure everything connects properly is so important. I know the feeling as I've just finished the revisions requested by my editor for VIPER. Should be coming out in Fall sometime.
Let me join belatedly in the congratulations, as I recently got to this point myself. My latest draft is overwritten, overexposited, overpopulated and overstuffed with plot ... but it makes sense, got me to where my outline was going, and ended on what feels like the right note. A stem-to-stern rewrite is in order, but that's fine. Just knowing that I staggered to the finish line of what once felt like an impossibly intimidating task makes me feel giddy and lightheaded and yes, happily drunk. It's such a great damn feeling, isn't it?
Congratulations, Minerva. Now brew up a strong pot of coffee. Party's over. Back to work. :)
