The draft is done!

Yay. I'm so excited. It's done.

My NaNoWriMo novel's third draft is d-o-n-e. That means that it's ready for submission. Awesome. I can't wait. I'm aiming to have it subbed my sometime next week. I think that's doable.

Anyway, here are the stats: 140 (1.5 line spacing, TNR) pages, which is 60,455 words. That's another awesome thing, I managed to cross the 60k mark. :)

Of course, even though it's done, there are a few teeny-tiny details that I want to double check tomorrow. The main thing's the timeline. Because it's set in a world that already has three stories written in it, and they all follow after each other, I need to make sure that I get the timeline right. It all has to match up, especially since some things happen at the same time as others, and even a few before.

I know it sounds confusing, but I want to have this all cleared up.

Last night I started to read a new book. It's an ARC of A Matter of Blood by Sarah Pinborough. I've read the first 50 pages and I'm really enjoying it. It's a little different, but certainly has subject matter that has sucked me in. I want to know what's going on. I like it when a story starts out grounded in real life but then spins around to become more. I'm waiting for that moment. I know it'll come soon...

I better get back to that timeline. Have a great weekend!
