I just completed writing Manuscript: Beta of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento. Like, literally ten seconds ago.
202,000 words. Way longer than I intended. Perhaps I will trim it down. Perhaps not.
There is much more work to be done, but I am one crucial step closer to publication. Now I just need my editor to read all of it. And find a cover artist. And a book designer. And revise a third and (hopefully) final draft.
So much more work to be done. And yet, I have never felt better about this story. I did not intend to take a month and a half to write the final four chapters, but this is the most complete that my story has ever felt to me.
I cannot explain what that feels like. I’m off to celebrate and close out a relaxing week at the beach. Have a wonderful weekend, and keep plugging away.
