It’s Like A Mini Bipolar Attack…

How I felt when I – after nearly eighteen months – I finally finished the first draft of my first book Passing Phases:

“Today was a good day!”

How I felt when I realised that I still have to do several re-drafts, research and get agency interest, write a full-on synopsis, peform various rituals to any and all gods that it sells to a publisher, repeat said rituals in the hope of it making some fecking money and, oh hell, do another draft:

“My hands smell like never ending tasks…”

True story.

      Thanks for the comment. Glad to see people enjoy my posts. And while I sit here replying to this comment my manuscript sits in its infancy on my hard drive 🙂

      Cheers man. We’re still only at the halfway point but it’s quite exciting to think I have essentially written a novel that’s currently sitting on my HDD waiting to be edited 🙂 I’ll keep you updated.
