    To be fair, I wouldn't consider that first 32-page draft a real "draft." I consider the one I wrote at 18 the first real draft. 24 now. In an ideal world, this thing would be done by the end of the year. Maybe end of February at latest. One can dream.

    I've now surpassed 83,000 words (265 pages, double-spaced) and finished a significant chapter since last post. I have a chapter to finish, which I'm 2,000 words into, and then another chapter to write, and then I think I only have the epilogue to pound out.

    Just posting this here to try to get some motivation to sprint to the finish line. Or stumble across it, or crawl, or whatever I gotta do.

    I finished this draft yesterday at 136,000ish words. I thought that would be it but then I listened to a podcast that is going to make me rewrite certain scenes of the first half.

    It never ends.
