First Draft Finished

I hope to increase the word count with revisions but as it stands Dragon's Heart is 73,273 words. Standard single title length is at least 90,000, but Silhouette Nocturne's guidelines are 70,000-75,000. So even if I don't length it, it falls in Silhouette's guidelines. Yeah.

For the next week, I'll be plotting and researching for Fallen, so I'll be ready Nov 1st for NaNo.

Then I'll go back to Dragon's Heart for revisions. I do need to make a plan of attack on revisions. I've read quite a few things on it and need to figure out which will work best for me.

Thanks to all the Sven supporters out there. I appreciate all comments.

Congratulations on finishing your draft! I hope the research for the second book wasn't too dry - sometimes, the writers/ academics are brilliant regarding their subject, but have difficulty putting the enthusiasm they feel onto the page. Hopefully, it wasn't that bad. :o)

Wow! Way to go on completing the first draft. That's fabulous. So much so that I am slightly envious. :-)
