Storms of Magic is OFFICIALLY FINISHED!
« on: September 13, 2017, 03:06:50 AM »
(I just realized that we have no place on the forum to really brag about writing accomplishments. We should probably fix this?)



I DID IT, I DID IT, I DID IT, I DID IT!

I have been writing stories since I was in (at least) third grade. In all that time, I have never finished the first draft to a novel that I would actually count. I kept starting stories and then I'd get stuck because I'd written myself into a wall and would get frustrated, or I'd come up with a new idea and start writing that instead.

I've officially broken that trend.

The first draft of my very first REAL novella-type-thing ever, (temporarily titled) Storms of Magic, that I've been working on for over a year, now stands at 22,280 words, 108 pages, thirteen chapters, and is officially FINISHED. It needs some major editing (and expansion, 'cause 22k is really short), but IT'S DONE.

-Flops-

...now to start planning for NaNoWriMo (once I've gotten some sleep).

Nice work! :) You should take a well-deserved rest.














Well, did you enjoy your break?

Well done! 

Now it's time to get started on the sequel, if there is one!

Only joking!  Take a break first!

Hoooray! Congratulations! It must feel amazing to be able to write THE END (even if you didn't actually write it - I'm sure you at least thought it in your head)!  :D

Haha, there will eventually be a sequel. I don't think my characters will leave me alone and not allow me to write one. :P It'll either be a sequel or it'll essentially be "part two" of the same book, since right now it's only at 22k and I'd like to expand it and make it longer. 


Congrats.
Thank you!

Thank you! Haha, I actually did write "the end." :P Though I'm already thinking that I'll end up cutting the part that I ended with and leave it off a bit sooner in the chapter, 'cause there's a line I wrote that I really liked and would work better as a final line. :P
