At the end of the draft, I want you to celebrate!
You did a thing! You can say that you completed the first draft of something that was special to you! Something that was only in your head, you now have in your hand. You committed to a process word for word. And that is to be celebrated! Now that you have this, I want you to take a deep breath (or a glass of wine). Several, if you can (this goes for wine too)!
But the most important thing is that you have finished! You’ve completed the thing that you set out to do, that most people stop doing because they get scared in the middle. Kudos to you for not being stuck in the middle; or if you were you kept going. Now let’s keep the same energy going into the next month when we discuss why rewrites and revisions are important. Come on! There’s more to do.
