Done with the first draft!...

After all the talk about crits, and after receiving some excellent critiques in the past weeks from my crit group, I finally decided that today was the day -- I was going to finish my first draft (if it killed me). So after completing my online work, I sat down and pushed through...and 5679 words later, I'm done with the first draft!

YAY! now I can go back, print it out, and start the real work (the fun work) :) I'm going to combine all my wonderful crits into one doc, print that out as well, and get to it...I'm excited and relieved. It's hard, once I allow so much time to elapse between writing periods. Sometimes I fear I won't be able to start again -- but the bones are there, it's ready for fleshing :)

whew!
