First draft finished around 8:40 this evening. 125,988 words. As I wrote yesterday, it’s not particularly thrilling. My next step is to get plot sorted out. Doing this by going back through and writing as concise a summary as possible of each section so that I can take that and play with the big blocks. Move things around, remove, etc… if necessary. I guess the first foundation I laid for the book is laying out all of the stories and recollections I had gathered. I want the second to be an engrossing, enjoyable read. Then prose, thematics, etc… etc… on top.

Now Reading:
