89,066 words, and done

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 . . .
