    Miss Nienke — if you’re doing first draft, the article you want is Notecarding: Plotting Under Pressure. This is actually designed to get you through the book the first time.

    Thanks, everyone. Getting started on what I hope will be the final push.

    And Arain — HUGE congrats on wrapping your first draft! That’s a fantastic feeling.

    VERY sorry about the off-topicness, but I feel like I have to shout this out to the world: I’m done! I just finished the 93K first draft of my novel, Ascwellan.

    I’m a university student and a hopeful would-be novelist, and I’ve been reading your articles and your blog for months. I just wanted to tell you how much I admire you, especially your work ethic – it gives me the incentive to get down at least a thousand words a day, come hell or high water! It’s easier to push my sleeves up and jump into a story knowing that I’m not the only one doing it. 🙂
