The End and The Beginning

Today was the end as well as the beginning. I wrote The End on my first draft of my novel. It has been a long process but I've never felt more rewarded in my life. I've had this story swimming around in my head for years but never focused on it as much as I have in the last couple.

I've never written a novel before this one. The most I ever wrote on one thing was a essay my senior year in High School. I had no idea where to even start or what to even do. I've always been great at teaching myself things and I figured that this was something I could teach myself to do or at the least teach myself the creative and discipline parts. 

I have loads of work to do ahead of me. It very much is your typical first draft with notes in the middle of sentences and gaps in time but it is baby. I got it all out and now it is time to feed it and help it grow. 

Now onto the next challenge to learn.

And this is how I currently feel <3
