Finished First Draft

Well oh well. I've reached the end of the story. Fifteen weeks. 62,000 words. I've really surprised myself. I've just done something I never thought I could. I'm astonished and proud at the same time.

But novel writing is like painting the Forth Bridge. When you get to the end, what remains is to go back to the beginning and get going again. Who was it that said all writing is rewriting?
