To be clear, the first draft is done. It still needs edits and polishing. But the bulk of the work is done because I find edits far easier than blank page drafting. Behold the result of months of work:
It came in around 10k more than I was expecting for the first draft, but I still have some wiggle room (book one is around 116k).
Now I’m going to go collapse and not think for the next twenty-four hours. At least.
