Version One Done

During the very early morning hours of December 30th, 2013 I finished the first draft of my story in its current format.  At 2:36am is when I typed my last word and saved my document.  I have been working on this particular story since 2011 but the original version wasn't working the way I wanted it.  I revised it twice in 2012 and then came up with the new version this year. 

The new version worked best to tell the story I needed to tell.  I read through the story yesterday adding new parts and removed a few lines I did not need.  I still have more work to do and could potentially add a couple of chapters.  I know that I could probably add more and that might be the best thing to do.

The tone of the story feels right but as I typically do I will hand my story off to a friend in its current rough draft form for input before I go at it again with a rewrite.  It feels good to have it done in a decent form.

I need to come up with a better title for the story as the original one no longer applies and the temporary one I gave it for the current version doesn't fit either.  I'm sure something will come to me as I keep tinkering away at it.

As the hours of 2013 wind down, I wish all of you all a happy and healthy 2014.
