First Novel? Finished. Now hand me my Diploma!

As you can see a plain THE END is gracing my word document, my WIP, my first EVER finished novel.
Not a picture book, not a short story, no, a Novel.

Life hasn’t got easier or anything, I still have to struggle, to fight, to go through endless battles of fear, doubt and harsh realities.
The world has not come to an end, nor have I jumped on top of it or anything as extreme or monkey-ish as that.
I haven’t gained more wisdom nor have I grown up to the Haneen I aspire to be.

The only feeling I have is complete Exhaustion, physically.
And a ton of WEIRDNESS mentally!

Well…and I thought Ikhlas Hussain was exaggerating when she described her feelings of nothingness after she finished her novel last year.

But any way, that was yesterday at 11:56 in the night. Now the feeling of weirdness is still there but it’s changing slowly into a weird kind of “I’m high” (no drugs included), now that I woke up to find my friends and family congratulating me on facebook. And still are as we speak..Love You Guys ^_^

The truth is…the truth is my friends is that I’m happy. About time life, about time.

I started Nights Unleashed in the end of 2009, now it’s  September 2013…man I sure deserve a diploma for this one.

It still needs a lot of work to do, the manuscript is a sheer miss, yea it’s messy –No Messi not you (I love saying this hahah)

Thanks for the shout out Leo! :)

Well What?!
I had to put him! 
Messi = accomplishment 

But this book took so much of me and gave me more, to all my characters I say thank you, to tshi-tshi my laptop who went through it with me, and the rest of laptops and copy books which had a part in this adventure thank all very much.
We still have work ahead of us, probably a rewrite but eh for now I say goodbye to Mark and the rest of the gang, for I need not look at them at all for the rest of the year to come.

See you soon everyone :)
