That’s right! I just finished the first draft of SuD.  I wrote the words -THE END- which is a monstrous lie, of course. This is just the beginning. I have to transcribe two thirds of the book to the black electronic box sitting on my bedroom floor. And my inner editor is nagging me to start ripping it apart,

“Oh just look at the plot holes, the inconsistencies, the bland language, the….”


Where was I….

Now I’ll take a break of a day or two and one-pass my other manuscript. But at the very least I can say I have now two full novels under my belt. And that is not something to be taken lightly. After a short break I’ll get back to it, but for now I will bask in the glow of this achievement.

And now for a video that expresses exactly how I feel:


  1. Yay for finishing the first draft! It’s always a good feeling, isn’t it, regardless of the insecurities that nag at us.

  2. Ain’t it the truth!

  3. How did I miss this update?

    Mucho, mucho congrats to you! Way to go, Ralfast! 🙂

  4. Thanks. Don’t worry Sasha Tasha (!), it’s the thought that counts.

    And since I know you enjoyed the NaNo so much I will subject…I mean grant you the opportunity to see the complete story once I transcribed it to electronic format.


  5. I will be honored to be *subjected* to reading the complete story. 😉

  6. p.s. and I have no idea why my comments keep appearing in the thread out of order. weird!

  7. Do they? I’ll see what I can do about it.

    As for the WIP expect something in a month or so. I’m still working on some other stuff that I need to send out (shorts and queries).

  8. Good. I really do want to read it.

    Yeah, regarding my comments- at least from my computer, as i read the the thread, my comments are above others who’d already written. Funny that you haven’t noticed. i guess it’s a glitch on my end.

  9. I just noticed it when you pointed it out. I don’t know how to fix it except to cut and paste existing responses into new ones, but I don’t like to mess with comments that way. I’ll see if I can figure something else.
