WOAH. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT WRITE NOW. (haha get it write now…)

I. Finished. Writing. Hide and Seek. *Screams and flails*

I also won Camp Nano! *confetti* My goal was really to finish my book… and that’s what I did!

You may be screaming at your computer or phone screens…

“So you’re officially done?”

Sadly, no. Because there is still a lot of work left to do. I am currently revising/rewriting parts of it. After I’m completely done with that, I’ll have to read it through and edit. Then I will give it to a few beta readers, and then I will make their edits and go over it again, if everything looks good I will start getting ready to publish.

And I have to get a cover made, because I want to get it more professionally created.

But I still can’t believe that I made it to the end of this book! I have attempted to write books before, but only wrote one chapter and gave up. I am so happy that I actually finished my telling my characters’ stories, and I am not giving up on them.

I’m so happy that I finally finished writing the first draft, because that stage took FOREVER. Literally, 1 year, 7 months, and 17 days. I’m also really sad to say goodbye to my characters. But they will always be in my heart. ❀

I am going to do a Q & A about my book! If you’d like, leave any questions you have down below and I’ll answer them soon!Β 

Wish me luck on revising and rewriting! Have a great day, everyone!

  2. Great job on winning Camp Nano! You sure worked on that book long and hard! I bet you feel overly excited about finishing up.
    I have a few questions for your characters:
    How would you react if your house was blown down by a wolf?
    If given the opportunity, would you take over the world?
    Do you have a secret crush?
    Would you let me be your friend even if you didn’t know me?
