The End

01 Feb

I’ve just written those two words at the bottom of my manuscript. ๐Ÿ™‚

My short story is finished.

Wooooohoooo! I can hardly believe I’ve done it ๐Ÿ˜€

This is a moment to savour. I’m good at beginning things; not so much at finishing.

This story started with HTTS then I took itย through HTRYN. I’ve finished both courses and got something which is my creation and no one else’s. It’s time to let this baby out into the world *trembles*. Time to contact those folk who offered to read it.

Wish me luck ๐Ÿ™‚

      Cheers, Ramble! It certainly feels like a huge accomplishment. I feel a bit euphoric – in a quiet sort of way ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Sari. I’m still feeling slightly dazed and at a loss.
      The ms has gone to one reader…I’m looking forward to getting feedback and yet feel very nervous ๐Ÿ™‚

        I know the feeling! But I also love getting some helpful critique back. If it’s going to improve the story then bring it on!

        A balanced critique is so very useful. Even better is having two or three from different people.

    Congratulations! Not only did you complete your story, you completed both HTTS and HTRYN. Wow!:)

    Keep us updated on your reader’s response.

    Now, the really big question – what are you writing next?

      Thanks Nancy!
      I’ve completed HTRYN but not HTTS. HTTS doesn’t work too well with a short story. The first draft was finished long before I got to the end of the course and then I went straight into HTRYN.

      So, I should really write another book but there is still Mystery in Morocco to finish, and a short story about a cell phone to write. It’s nagging away at me and would be fun ๐Ÿ™‚
