Thanks to a mammoth effort this weekend the first draft is finished. It is 65,420 words long and now I will do nothing.
Seems an odd thing to do as I know it needs a lot of changes (got a long list of revisions I want to make for the second draft already) but I need to let it sit and my mind wander onto other subjects so when I come back at the beginning of April to being that second draft I will see the whole book in a fresh light.
Then will start the hard part of making it good. I think I know what is needed which is a good start, but only time will tell.
Oh I’ve also added a Progress Check section where you see where I am at and how far I have until I’ve finished this book.
