I’ve just done something I’ve never managed in all my years as a writer before – write The End on a full length novel.  Yup, after 90,012 words and a long time deciding just which novel to work on I have finally completed the first full draft of Tears of the Mountain.  It’s a big step forward, helped out by doing the last 20,000 words in the last seven days.

Of course it still needs much work, such as organising into chapter, spell checking, polishing and correcting details in the early parts of the story that got changed in the later part.

And then once that is done there starts the look hunt for rejections, I mean an agent and the possibility of getting it in print.

Still its a big thrill just to have gotten it to where it is now.
