Ladies and gentlemen, Siege first draft -- the hardest part -- is done.
And the grand word total?
115334 / 115334 words. 100% done!
And now I have Saturday off, then I start the next one on Sunday. I have a month to get a rough first draft down on paper. Pray for me.
The back end is rough. It needs tightening up the front. There are some dangling plot threads, and some details/layering missing ... but the shape is there, and I think the last line gets to stay ...
