I finished writing the novel!
My first draft clocks in at 301 pages (96,460 words). It was weird reaching the end. There just wasn't anything more the character needed to say. I tapped out THE END and sighed.
I have an idea for another novel, a longer work. But instead of just jumping in, I'm going to do an outline. This is something I'll probably start next year. My plan now is to let this one settle, then to reread it sometime in December.
