I just printed out the first draft of my first novel, A Blackthorn Winter, for its first round of revising/rewriting.
The first draft ended up being 50,926 words, 283 pages, which is 3 lbs of manuscript! This feels so much more substantial than a Scrivener file.
I’ve had this specific idea for a book sitting around for years, but finally took advantage of NaNoWriMo 2017 to actually write it down. It needs a lot of work, a lot of rewriting, but I’m so excited to see where it goes from here.
