First Draft Finished!

I can’t believe it. The first draft of the novel is done. I started writing the draft from my outline on 07/13/2004, meaning it took 340 days to get here, but it’s done.

Now I need to put it away for a bit before coming back to start the rewrite.

Phew!

Update: Final word count on the first draft was 108,840 (which was 563 pages).
