Well, 74,716 words later (that’s about 315 pages) and I’m willing to pull the zipper on this bag and call it a draft. As of about (say…) 15 minutes ago I hit “Save” on the last chapter of the first draft of the novel I’ve been working on for the past year or so. It feels good to call it done — even if “done” here translates a bit more accurately as “rough around the edges, polished at points, and perhaps even a little threadbare but still a start-to-finish story”.
I’m going to go take a break from it before coming back for revisions. Hopefully my break is long enough to get some feedback from folks. (Let me know if you’re interested in a downloadable copy!)
