Complete at 37,000 words. There are places where the draft could benefit from being filled out some, or even a great deal. I try to plan these things so they can grow up to be full novels someday, and there’s a lot here that could still be explored.
Still, it feels good to have reached the end of the story for now. I was having my doubts earlier today.
The ending took my completely by surprise, and came quite a bit sooner than expected, which didn’t hurt anything.
I’d also like to thank Dylan Rhymes, whose album Dead Famous has allowed me to survive the last 5 hours. I think it also had a major and hopefully good influence on the tone of my ending.
That’s all for now. Time to rest, eat, and remember my name.
