Done.

‎246 pages. Nearly 113,000 words.

My first draft didn't go where I was expecting... but it certainly got somewhere. And for a book about the unusual things one might write when asleep, it's only appropriate that I approached this last chapter in a dreamlike state of near-exhaustion, the warmth of my laptop bringing me in and out of consciousness.

Next step: Now that I know what it is, I have to make what it is better.

Yes, I'm sure it needs work.

But you did it. And that's AWESOME.

Congratulations! I still remember 8th grade English class (Mrs. Gray, perhaps?) where I learned it's much easier to come up with a first draft if you write double-spaced and don't stop for anything.
