With the first draft of my novel, anyway. Well, that’s a relief.
The journey took a couple of unexpected detours, which means I ended up somewhere I hadn’t entirely anticipated. Which means I now get to go back and start the journey all over again (and make it look like this was the journey I had in mind all along).
The draft ended up about 20 percent longer than I estimated, based on the lengths of the first two Walter Sands books. Do I need to streamline the novel? How am I going to do that? I have all these notes about stuff I left out!
Maybe I’ll take a break and focus on women’s curling for a while. Then on to the second draft . . .
