And then it was the end of the draft.
Decent writing day overall. I’m still not 100% happy with the last part of the last chapter and may well tinker with it a bit more over the next few days before sending out the last chapters to betas.
There’s definitely still a lot of work to be done on this manuscript – enough to justify another full draft, I think. I was going to send this full draft out to a few more beta readers, but I may hold off on that until I’ve been able to fix a few things at least.
Amusingly, I woke up this morning with another novel in my head. Not even Never, which I’ve been planning as the next novel to work on. This is an old idea and one that I thought had sunk down somewhere below the murk in my mind. But this morning I woke up with one of the protagonist’s voices in my head. Maybe, energy permitting, I’ll work on it a little for Nano. Maybe.
Not much apart from pootling around the house getting a few bits and pieces done. I’m finding it near impossible to get through the day right now without having to spend a decent amount of time lying down. Which is annoying, since I pretty much can’t do anything while lying down but watch some TV or listen to podcasts and the like. Even more annoying, I had to lie down this morning after having a shower and breakfast. But I managed to get some work done afterwards, so I guess it’s time well spent. It’s still frustrating, though.
It’s been crazy windy all day, along with some decent spurts of rain this morning. Not really weather to invite me to go out for a walk, but I’ll probably head out in a little bit anyway.
