I finally finished! After the ill-fated attempt last year, I came back and was able to win, with time to spare. Now THAT feels good.
I started another novel already, as well. The goal word count is 100,000 and I’d like to be done before March (which is definitely do-able, even if I relax the pace I had this November). I’m really in love with the writing process, and with long fiction in general.
