legs 11 is complete!

How overwhelming it is to say that!

I did just under 6,000 words this week, bringing Legs 11 to a complete total of 76,652 words!

I'm really sad to have finished it as it's my favourite novel out of all I've written, but at the same time I'm really excited for the rewrites and polishing coming up in the new year that will bring it up to the standards I'm aiming for.

I'm going to give myself a break over the new year and complete these impossible essays I have to do, before starting with some new, fresh ideas I've had in my head for some time.

I'd like to thank everyone who's welcomed me into this wonderful blogging community and helped me along with my novel, and I'd especially like to thank Lane for setting up The Finishers, because if I hadn't have joined this group I certainly wouldn't have finished my novel by now. Thanks to everyone in there for all of their encouragement and even though the group is finishing after christmas i'd like to wish everyone the best of luck in completing their novels. You've all done so well already, so keep it up!!!

Finally, to everyone reading this, merry christmas and happy new year!

And so can YOU!

itching for something new

Legs 11. Ashleigh Morris, Britain's next top model. Jamie West, trying to make her dreams come true. The bad bit? I think I'm tired of the runways, the make-up artists, the fashion houses and the [dare I say it] clothes.

I've had a new idea for a story in my head for a couple of months now. But I can't betray my beloved Legs! I know if I start this new idea then I'll never, ever complete Legs.

And I really, reaaaaaaally want to get it finished. And I do love it. So much. I just... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
a good week!

I managed 3,359 words this week, which makes me very pleased with myself! Until now I'd only been able to manage a thousand words a week, so I'm really happy that I started writing on thursday night and couldn't stop!

Bad news now though - 4 assignments due in before christmas, including one due in in 6 days' time. eeek!
