As of about 30 minutes ago, the first draft of Hourglass is complete! Woohoo!
This gives me six whole weeks to polish. And, uh, write two anthology stories. But that’s OK, because as long as I’ve got a draft of the book to work with, the rest will fall into place.
The draft will need some cutting, and the first chapters in particular are a bit flabby, but that’s what rewriting is for.
Either wonderfully or maniacally, I am considering working on my thriller concept for the rest of the night. But not before I do a little celebratory dance.
