Still more to go. It’s like this novel won’t ever have a final chapter…even though I have some of the broad strokes for the end in my mind. I’m doing my best to make it a payoff worthy of all the words which precede it, but I’m taking it a step at a time.
This is still draft zero. Nano is very run-and-gun for me. It causes a lot of word padding, dynamic shifts, and tangents. I don’t even consider these first drafts anymore. Often the speed and creative process causes a major shift in story or tone.
If none of that scared you off, a great deal of this draft can be found here.
