I skipped the writing part and went straight for publishing

Still not halfway through my messy first draft, I suddenly felt the need to see my novel in print. When you write, no matter how many pages you have put down, it kind of lacks a physical form. You don't even see a stack of paper like you do when using a typewriter.

So I printed the cover, wrapped it around a paperback (Utopia by Lincoln Child) and it actually looks pretty much like an actual novel. As long as nobody opens it, I'm a published author. Now, I just have to fill it with words.
