I finished. It’s done. 33 chapters. 84,681 words. I ended up rewriting the entire last third of the book. It took me far too long (three years OMG IT TOOK ME THREE YEARS) and it induced all the rage but it is done.
I’ve gotta say, based on this experience? Second draft = WAY harder than the first.
Is it any good? I’m not sure yet. My eyeballs are spent, I need a new pair.
But it’s done. The 2nd draft is done. After a long nap and several drinks… it’s onto the next step.
