I am so close to finishing the first draft of my novel.
It is absolutely crazy.
I’m just a couple of pages into Chapter 36 now. Chapter 37 will be the climax. Then I just need to wrap everything up and I will have a draft in front of me.
It is mind-boggling to think about.
I apologize to my few reader-helpers. I have made a few minor changes to the earlier part, to better dovetail into the chapters I am writing now. So sorry about that.
Once I finish it, I plan to read through the whole manuscript once to fix grammar, spelling, syntax, etc., and then I will leave it alone for a while, I guess. Let it simmer for a bit.
And then I shall be hitting up critical people to read before I start the editing. 😉
Current stats: 35 chapters (and change), 81, 560 words, and 261 pages.
