There isn't a whole lot to say right now, except that...MY FINAL CHAPTERS ARE WRITTEN! Earlier today, I hit "send" on the final chapter and epilogue of The Accounts of Verdi Mier. They're off to my critique group, and I cannot even wrap my head around it.
It's been an incredible...er...five or so years. From writing to editing to throwing the whole thing out and RE-writing.
Final stats: 155,648 words / 515 pages.
I hope to spend the next two months whittling that word count down to the 120k region (my ultimate goal before I submit to agents).
More rambling later. Right now, I just want to bask in this feeling and enjoy one of the good writing days.
