Mission Accomplished: First Draft

“Writer Girl Summer” is finally at its end, and so is my blog hiatus I was on. My entire summer was pretty much just a caffeine-fueled writing frenzy of utter madness. It feels really damn good though to have completed my (very rough) first draft. I am so ready to take a much-needed break from writing to let the story breathe, and to regain some of my sanity before I go on to tackle the dreaded second draft.


Luckily for me, Halloween is just around the corner, so I’m going to use the full month of October to recover from my crazy writing binge and to just focus on doing all the things I love to indulge in during spooky season. We’re talking horror movies galore, catching up on some creepy video games, reading scary stories, fall baking, etc. I’m also planning to participate in the 2021 Corpsetober Art Challenge, so I’m really excited to get back into drawing. I really didn’t draw much this summer since I was so focused on completing the first draft of my book, so I can’t wait to get back at it and practice some more with my iPad Pro. It was kind of torturous just seeing it collect dust all summer, but I’m glad I remained focused.Ā 


I can’t wait to start catching up on everyone’s blogs over the next several days, and see what you guys have been up to while I was away. In the mean time, how was your summer?? What are you most excited for this fall?

    1. Thank you so much! Good to be back! ^_^ Haha not this first draft, at least. šŸ˜› It’s a very ROUGH first draft, so I need to streamline things and fill in some blanks first. šŸ™‚
      C&M is reading this first draft while I take my break from writing and is going to give me some feedback on what she thinks and then it’s back to work. I’d love your opinion on it though, once I get it where I want it to be! šŸ˜€

      1. Aww I was just joking, no pressure at all but Iā€™d be more than happy to read it and give some feedback. At one job I had it was my responsibility to proof read and then give critical feedback on advertising material haha. God knows why they asked me haha??? Maybe my attention to detail. Maybe because no one else wanted to do it šŸ˜‚

  1. I can’t wait to see your October drawings! Your style is so diverse that I never know what I’ll get. I’ve been hearing all the excitement about your WIP from the other end, Ms. Cupcakes & Machetes herself. She’s so excited to read your draft, and I’m so glad you guys have an amazing friendship. It makes me hopeful for this nutty world!

    1. Thank you so much! That means a lot. I really like to mix things up with what I draw, so I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the stuff I’ve posted. ā¤
      Aw, C&M is the best. šŸ˜€ I don't know what I'd do without her, honestly. I'm on pins and needles letting anyone see this very ROUGH first draft but I'm looking forward to her feedback on it before I go further into revising and writing the next draft. šŸ™‚

      It still blows my month that WW is celebrating 80 years! Can’t wait to see all the awesome posts you’re cooking up. šŸ˜€
      And yay! Halloween! This time of year is just so fun, and it’s like a last hurrah before the stress of the holiday season. Haha

  2. CORPSETOBER. Bring on all the drawings!
    I’ll start reading your rough draft as soon as I get back from up north. I was going to take it with me but schoolwork is going to bog me down for any spare time I will have up there. The past few weeks have been easy school wise so OF COURSE it would choose to get crazy this week. D:

  3. Omg that’s AMAZING. Congratulations ā™„ā™„ā™„ You beat NaNoWriMo even before NaNoWriMo lol. As exhausting as it is to write a novel, there’s such a sense of accomplishment once you finish AND it is October with Halloween just around the corner. You deserve some well needed and spooky fun šŸ™‚
