I had a very productive day. I managed to finish 7 chapters -- piecing them all together and into what will _probably_ be their final arrangement. It was so much fun--I love watching this book take shape. One of my friends kindly read the chapters as I went, and seemed very pleased with how things were looking. YAY. (g)
Anyway -- I did a running word count and I've now pulled about 36K together -- not much more to go, and I must say that ain't bad for a day's work. (Well, I did three chapters before today, but you know what I mean.) So, ten chapters completed -- not sure how many more to go, but I really hope to finish this weekend.
I may have to start calling for beta readers soon -- anyone want to volunteer? (g) I'm so thrilled to be _this_ close to the end. Then on to book 2.
