Excuse me while I flail in excitement. I know i'm not really finished, now I begin editing, but I've finished the first draft and I am very, very happy! It was hard to stick to the scheduled through the summer when I wanted to go do other things with friends but I think forcing myself was the only way to get it done... the sparkly stickers help too!
If you have thought about writing story but thought you couldn't, just buckle down and do it! there's no other way around it. Don't say I'll start tomorrow either, start now... RIGHT NOW!
