I finished!!!!!!


Warning: This post may contain an enormous amount of exclamation marks and squealing!!!!

I finished Silver Touch (my current WIP, to read more about Silver Touch just click here!!) tonight, well more like this morning at exactly 5:52 am!!!!

Total word count: 50,500

Wait, I have to say it one more time!!!

I finished Silver Touch!!!!

And I love it!!! I'm seriously in love with this story!!!

I can't wait to dive in and begin editing. I'm insanely excited about tying up the loose ends and perfecting this story the best I can.

It was worth staying up all night, listening to Life House over and over, and drowning myself in coffee.

Due to lack of sleep I will cut this post short. But soon I will be posting pictures of my story board and I have an award to pass along!! So stay tuned!!

I'll leave you with a quote from Silver Touch.

I have never felt more alive in my entire life. And it is all because of her; she found me, dug deep within me, and made me not want to breathe my last breath. She made me realize I didn’t want to drown in the everlasting blackness…

She brought me back to life.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I love the feeling of finishing a WiP, especially when you've put hours upon hours into it!!!! My rule afterwards is to celebrate (however you do) and then follow by resting my wip for at least three days so I can go back in with a level head, not so in love, not so biased!

    GOOD LUCK :)
