Finished Final Draft of Novel

I finished the final draft of my novel at the end of October. I wrote it longhand which is a first for me. I needed to bypass my critical mind and allowed my creative mind to take over. It worked. It took me seven months to get through it though as it brought up many issues. Some weeks I couldn't write anything because I was too triggered to do so.

I'm now ready to type all of those pages into my computer and my software program Scrivener.

Memoir Now A Novel

Again? Yes, again.

I first wrote my memoir as a novel. Another writer suggested I write it as a memoir. It was a mistake listening to that person's suggestion. I've come full circle to understand that one must write what they are comfortable writing.

I've written suspense and mystery and thriller stories since 2003 when I first started writing my novel through NaNoWriMo.

Now I'm back to writing my book as a novel in crime fiction.

I finished
The Killer Inside Me by Jim Johnson. Noir fiction. The genre fits my novel
