Despite ripping out a couple scenes wholesale, still have a net gain of 5k words in today’s revision work. I’m in the last third of the book and can tell I was working fast and hot in the zero.

It’s always best to stop before one is completely exhausted. It makes it easier to pick up the thread and momentum when one returns.

This bloody book’s going to be near 200k before I’m finished, I can just tell—which presents its own set of problems.


But then, what does one expect of the third in a monstrous epic fantasy series?

At least it’ll be finished.

But for now, I get to fall into bed, content with having done my best today.

It’s a sweet feeling, and a comfort.

Goodnight, beloveds. May you be starting the weekend in the way you like best.
