Crack open the good booze, because I’m like a toasted Pop Tart, I’m DONE!
136,637. Count for draft numero uno.
So now it goes off to the ‘editing department’ for checking for inconsistencies (of which there will be many at this point, believe me), before I get it back to work on the second draft, perhaps in a month or so.
In the meantime, I am taking what we hope to be the last draft of S Derbyshire’s ‘the Mentor’ for tweaking and final conistency checking. With any luck the two works should exchange back at the end of June.
Now if you’ll excuse me…I need a drink.
