I don't think I've ever posted twice in one day, but I just had to report.
In short: I did it!
My Manti book still rough in a couple of spots, but it's drafted. Everything is bridged and coherent. The story is complete. (Not sure I'm 100% satisfied with the closing scene, but I'll tinker with it later.)
The current word count is eerily close to what I predicted: 95,044.
I still need to finish up the historical notes section in the back and then go through the stack of papers lingering on my desk from my critique group before I give them the entire manuscript to some of them to hack apart.
But all of that can wait until Monday.
For now, I'm going to revel in the fact that I reached my goal of having this book drafted by Saturday, November 10, 2007.
And it feels good.
Now, where's the chocolate?
