I'm not sure if that's technically what I should be calling my newly-printed copy of my book, but let's face it, manuscript just sounds wicked cool.
On top is my first draft, all ready to be destroyed by my editing, I've already marked it up a ton. I hate typos! Grrr. Anyway, I used up every peice of printer paper yesterday and had to go buy more so I could finish. I was kind of hesitant to waste that much paper and ink, but if felt really incredible to hold it in my hand when it was finished. Underneath the printed copy is about eight or so legal pads containing my hand-written rough draft.
