Just that really. It's a fantasy novel set 10,000 odd years in the future and I Am Done! smilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmile

NadiaWadia Mon 10-Feb-14 01:15:55

Do you recommend it then? What is the book?

KimCarcrashian Mon 10-Feb-14 01:20:26

Well done smile

Coumarin Mon 10-Feb-14 01:20:47

Seriously impressed. Well done!

MsMarvel Mon 10-Feb-14 01:20:55

Is it a book you have written? If so, very well done!! Will need to let us know when it gets published and it can become one of the mumsnet signs. If you have the scarf and the book, you know you're a mumsnetter!!

Coumarin Mon 10-Feb-14 01:21:50

Oh I meant I'm seriously impressed if you mean you've finished writing your book today!

Not that impressed of you've finished reading one. grin

NadiaWadia Mon 10-Feb-14 01:29:34

Oh, I just assumed OP meant the book she was reading!

Topaz25 Mon 10-Feb-14 01:45:42

Congratulations! Yay!

2kidsintow Mon 10-Feb-14 02:26:54

Oh, I love a fantasy novel .

If you want a proof reader, OP........

wink

MissHobart Mon 10-Feb-14 02:29:07

LST Mon 10-Feb-14 05:09:47

Well done Op smile

How is this AIBU? Don't be so lazy to just dump all your thoughts in here , find an appropriate board.

JumpingJackSprat Mon 10-Feb-14 07:38:53

Well done op its a major achievement. Do you have a publisher? As a aside ignore pixie clearly they were appointed board police and nobody told the rest of us.

Dwerf Mon 10-Feb-14 07:54:12

Well done!

Bloody great feeling isn't it? I do the nanowrimo challenge (50k in 30 days) and the first time I completed it, I cried with relief and joy.

I have fallen out with my latest endevour and we're sulking with each other.

Rollermum Mon 10-Feb-14 07:57:37

Yay well done! I'm trying to write a book at the moment - v inspiring.

LisaMed Mon 10-Feb-14 08:10:59

Well done!!!!

I think that the hardest thing about writing isn't inspiration or plotting or character. I think it's actually sitting down and getting the words out.

So impressed.

grapelovingweirdo Mon 10-Feb-14 13:04:12

You lovely people! Thanks for your replies! Sorry, I was sleeping it off :D It would be lovely if someone could proofread for me. I'm very low on funds though so have no budget :P

I've been writing it for three years, I've never written a book before so this is the first time for everything!

LST - Congratulations!!!

Great stuff. But are you posting this in order to seek out a proof reader? You've basically said "proof read my book... for bupkis!" People don't proofread for poops and giggles, luv. They do it to earn a living. No one will feel as passionate about your book as you do. It's your baby. But don't expect a proofreader to do your book justice out of pure love and joy. You need to pay them and pay them properly. Good luck. You've got a ladder to climb.

Well done OP.

I am a writer too.

This morning I spent five hours finishing an editing job. I feel so free.

squoosh Mon 10-Feb-14 14:09:31

Congratulations! Is this your first draft or is this properly finished?

DrNick Mon 10-Feb-14 14:09:59

why could this be unreasonable fgs?

use the proper topic

grouches off

KittensoftPuppydog Mon 10-Feb-14 14:29:28

congratulations! It's a great feeling, but after a while you'll start thinking of improvements...

ineedabodytransplant Mon 10-Feb-14 15:14:47

grapelovingwierdo, I will happily proof-read it for gratis. I love reading and I love sci-fi.
Just as long as you can take constructive criticism grin

Pigeonhouse Mon 10-Feb-14 15:21:13

Congratulations, OP. Am also working on a novel, but today hasn't been particularly prolific.

Give us a flavour - what happens 10000 years in the future?

FoxesRevenge Mon 10-Feb-14 15:47:05

I wonder if mumsnet will still be around in 10000 years grin
