That’s all. What more is there to say? It’s approx. 170,000 words, which is probably a bit long. It probably needs a lot of additional work, editing, rewriting, and paring down. This is actually probably only the halfway point. But you know what?
I haven’t finished a book since 1996. Not even in draft form, which, let’s be serious, is all I ever write anyway. The book is done. I could pass out copies, and people could read it and get a complete story–beginning, middle, and end.
And I know it’s late, and I’ve just been balling my eyes out as I typed, but sweet baby jeebus, I think this one’s good.
I think it’s really good.
