My next novel, currently titled Killing Oak, has a completed first draft. It’s both exciting and disappointing to finish something like this. There’s more work to be done, but most importantly, everything is written down. It worked out to 73,000 words. I like my novels to be around 100,000. That’s unlikely to happen with this one, even after more drafts. But very few of the books I have edited are over 100,000 words.
I’ll start the editing and checking process tomorrow. But I’m excited to be in this place now.
Have a great day!
