My book is printed!

Red Rivers!

I wrote this baby in the past month of November, during and for the NaNoWrimo challenge.
Honestly is that once November was over and i reached the goal of the 50.000 words i never picked on my book again, even if i had ideas to carry on with it. In this way i never came to complete the story or even revise the entire thing, but we were offered a free print and shipping through create space and i came to realise a couple weeks back that the deadline was near and i had no time to go over my book,so i made a pretty cover, different from my original one, and make the pagination, as well as i could in a fast way and sent it out to be printed, without even thinking about the unfinished story, the mistake galore or the scenes that should be cut out because my mum will want to read it, even if it's in English.

However, this morning when i woke up and mum told me i had a package waiting for me the excitment was too big and holding my book in my hands as if it was something published felt like a really big deal to me. Now i have something i made in my bookshelf, something i'm proud of, kinda, and that i will keep with me for a long long time. It's a feeling of satisfaction,you know?

  1. Exactly, it feels like such a big deal, doesn't it?

    When I held mine, I was just like... oh my God! This is getting serious, it's a printed copy of something I wrote! And I guess my whole family finally realised that I'm serious about this writing thing. My mom hugged me and I knew she was about to cry.

    So yeah, I guess memories from that amazing November will last even longer now that there are books around to prove it. :D Start gearing up for the next one!
