I finished writing the first draft of my first “official” novel in seven months: 3rd May-3rd December. I say “official” because I’ve written two others that were too short to be called novels but when I wrote them I thought of them as novels.
If by May 3rd 2010, I’ve finished editing/revising/rewriting it, then it would have taken an entire year from start to finish. Pretty good, I think, for someone who, by then (May 3rd) will be 16.
