Finito

It’s done. The first full draft of Please Give is done.

It’s not complete. I’m going to let it sit for a few weeks, so I can approach it with fresh eyes as I read it through from beginning to end and polish it into a second draft.

But for now, there are no bracket notes. No gaping holes in the narrative. No fixes prickling my fingertips and bringing me back to my keyboard. No missing characters, no characters I need to remove, no questions stirring over and over in my head, nothing. Nothing but a finished first draft. A finished first draft of a book.

It feels good.

And because I’ve written so many words over the past several months, I leave you with the following to express my feelings on the first draft’s completion.
