Victory Dance

Okay, this is going to sound highly preliminary, because that's the sort of thing one might say after NaNiWriMo is over, and it hasn't even started yet, but I'm doing on anyway.

I just finished my first draft of Cordamant's Heir.

**Victory Dance**

It's awesome. It feels so great you can even join in if you want to. In fact, I highly encourage it.

This was challenging. This was, by far, the longest draft I've ever done. Heck, I'll go so far as to say this is the longest thing I've ever written in my entire life. It weighs in at an shocking 103.5k. As far as I'm concerned, that's hecca long. Not Lord of the Rings 1 long, but definitely longer than Harry Potter 1. Somewhere between the two, really.

It's definitely long for me. (1.5x the length of Thief Book Draft 1. 2x the length of the Massive Revisions of Thief Book. 2x the length of Miss Snitch. 2.5x the length of my first book.) Yeah, for me, it's mad long.

Now do we understand the victory dancing?

I'm feeling mad awesome. How about you?


  1. Congrats! I'll go do a little dance for you too, K?

  2. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am dancing and a little squee-ing is going on in my end.


  3. Congratulations! That's definitely worth a victory dance or two!

  4. Yay, you! I always feel incredibly lucky to finish a draft!

  5. Congratulations! No matter how long it is it's always great when it's over. Good for you!

  6. Hi guys,
    Thanks so much for the congratulations. You're so sweet. :)
