I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I’ve finished the zero draft* of my book. There’s still a lot of work to do, but the worst is over. I think of this early complete draft as being like a pencil sketch for a painting. Now, I know what the story is from beginning to end. Now, I get to rework it and, hopefully, make it better. This is the bit I like best.
** I’ve just read Justine’s YA book Liar, which is fabulous.
