Do we open champagne up for the first draft or the book signing... oh well I'll drink to anything!

The champagne is bought and chilling. Also, I had a hot fudge sundae with blackberry ice cream.

Wow-- that's a lot of pages! I'm still struggling to add 10-15 words here and there to my 250 pages.

Do you feel depleted? Or joyously released? I guess I'd feel both.

Hey everyone--thanks. k-oh--I don't know how I feel; weirdly normal. Is this a good sign or a bad sign?

That is excellent news. Now the trimming and polishing begins, which is my favorite part of a completed first draft. (Not that I've gotten there with a novel.) Enjoy the moment and I'm looking forward to a great read.
