Humour🤣 Writing

Intoxicated because you have completed your first draft? You need to sober up!

The first draft of anything is shit - Ernest Hemingway

I have been quietly celebrating the completion of the first draft of my book.   


Giving birth to just shy of 80,000 words is an emotional experience.  I have laughed and cried my way through it.  The mental stretch marks will fade, eventually.  An undisclosed amount of digestive biscuits have been consumed during the process, dunked in copious cups of coffee, as well as more than just the odd glass of wine. 

But I have done it and I am proud of myself.

The reality is that this is the point where I need to start working my butt off.  Re-writing and editing.  A book isn’t written, it is rewritten.

The first draft of anything

Euphoria be gone!  It’s time to sober up …


Thank you very much for visiting my niche-less blog! If you have time before you leave, would love you to tell us what you think. All the best, Tessa Barrie
