Winning

It's official. I win.
It’s official. I win.

My first camp is over. My target was 50K. My final word count was 71,375. I’ve validated it so now it’s official. I won. I’m about 65% through my outline so I’m not done yet, but I’ve broken the back of a story that’s been sitting on the back-burner for almost thirty years so I’m feeling immensely proud of myself right now.

The characters who have stayed with me all that time have been fleshed out in the last few weeks and I love them more dearly than ever. One of them will be leaving me shortly and it’s making me feel sad just thinking about writing his exit scene. He’s undergone so many personality changes over the years and has become the exact opposite of his initial character sketch. I can see him laughing in my head. I know his voice and his life. I’m totally in love with the man he’s become. This is my life now. I intend to fall in love hard and often.

Time for tea and a jam tart. I know how to celebrate.
