After many many years grafting away, the first draft of my fantasy novel is now complete. The book has been a long time coming and at the completion of the first draft comes in at just over one hundred and twenty-five thousand words.
Three copies of the manuscript have now been sent to trusted friends and family. The beta readers will hopefully rip it apart, looking at grammar, pacing, structure , characters, continuity and more. Once the feedback has been assimilated I am looking forward to cracking on with the second draft. Once this is done, I believe it will be time to send my novel to agents in the hope of securing one.
In the mean time, I will be drawing the maps, characters and other artworks to complete the story.
