First draft finished!

At last, I have finally, after many months,  finished the first draft of a children’s tale that I have been writing.

I have had the story rumbling about in my head for so long but I couldn’t make it to the finale in a way that felt right.

It is a rhyming story, and that in itself poses a great deal of problems.  I didn’t want it to sound forced or wooden!  And it so easily can with rhyme.  But I am pleased, at least with the conclusion.

But now, time to leave it alone; it is not ready for public consumption quite yet.  As with most creative writing, once the first draft is done, that is the time to leave it in the desk/on file and forget it.  Revision, revisiting takes some time to develop so I will leave it alone!
