[process] Writing a novel

The initial rough draft of Tourbillon is complete at 198,900 words. (Of a predicted 200,000 words, amazingly enough.) 51 days of work without a missed day. 109 hours of elapsed effort. I am exhausted, elated and boggled all at once.

I’m here to tell you, it can be done.

I feel wrung out. And I’m already looking forward to the next one.
