Second Draft? Check!

Today was monumental for two reasons.

The first, I finished my slow read of my first draft, thus effectively completing my second draft.

The second, I printed off a few copies for my student panel to begin reading THIS WEEK!

This means that in the very near future I will have people read my work for the very first time. Eep!
This also means I will soon begin my third draft, the draft I'll submit to agents*. Double Eep!

It doesn't feel real until there is a stack of papers sitting in front of you.  Like these:
I made a fancy cover so you can't read the words...yet.

If anything, Horatio thinks LitD is comfy.
*I take that back.  It will probably be my fourth or fifth draft I submit.
