It sucks. It’s garbage. It needs some major edits – hell, a whole damn rewrite is needed to make this thing any good.
It feels GREAT.
It’s an honest-to-goodness 130k word novel that I actually finished. Who cares if it sucks? Just finishing the damn thing was a huge learning experience. The beginning actually rocks, though the middle is pretty much a mess, and the ending doesn’t work because the middle doesn’t work. But I see what I did wrong, I know what I need to focus on the next time around. I have been putting aside a million little ideas so I could narrow in on this current project. Time to grab one of those and start over!
I’ll probably cannibalise this completed project for ideas. There’s some good shit in there!
BRB butchering my manuscript.
