COLLAPSES IN WET, SOGGY HEAP
Too many personal problems to list and almost 77 000 words later:
I've finished the first draft of the novel.
Now for the line-editing. I've got a couple of agents asking to see the first 3 chapters and synposis, so that's the first priority. Then all I have to do is smooth out all the dead ends I threw in over the last umpteen months, and polish it until it looks like I meant every word.
Dead easy :)
