Another first draft complete

April 22, 2008

Woohoo! Another first draft finished and Cinderella gets her ‘sort of’ happy ever after, at least the best happy ever after that she can hope for in the complex love and family circumstances she is now in.

After ditching the false beginning which was all about Sleeping Beauty who suffered from narcolepsy (and never made another appearance in the story), I have replaced it with the original short story that started it all. And this is my final first draft word count:

Zokutou word meter
68,572 / 68,572

Today, I’ve been editing ‘I’m with the Band’ and looking through magazines for words for a collage gift that I’m making for a friend. I will post a picture of the gift once it is finished and presented.

My last short story has been doing the rounds of the office and I’ve been getting some very interesting and encouraging feedback. It’s very appropriate for my co-workers to read it as it is set in a call centre, and we work in a call centre. But I’ve got to hang out for another four weeks to find out the competition results. The results are in, but will not be announced until the writers’ group AGM. Best not to think about it.

So with the completion of Beyond Happily Ever After, that makes five first drafts in various stages of development. Time for some editing!
