It’s over! It’s finally over! Time to celebrate with your food, beverage, and friends of choice!
Whether you’ve gotten to 50k or not, you deserve congratulations for taking the challenge! So have a cookie – you deserve it!
As I’ve said before, the first draft is only the beginning of a long journey. Some may choose not to revise their first draft, others may go through a few revisions before realizing that this isn’t the project they want to continue with. And some may go so far as to get their novel published!
If you do plan to revise, remember to put your novel away for about two weeks or so before you look it over again. It’ll help you get some objectivity on it and perhaps a new perspective. Jot down any revision ideas you have as soon as they come to mind.
But for now… enjoy the victory and be glad that you’ve made it to the end of the month!
