It's done! In record time!
Word-a-thon Stats: 50,000 words in less than five weeks.
Some Kind of Normal: FINISHED!
I have sent it off to my first beta reader, and I am taking a hiatus for two weeks to lay on the beach and let my brain go to mush and read some really good books and actually enjoy my family without a computer between us.
I thought the more I'd write, the more casual this would feel, but it feels just as thrilling as the first time!
Totally not planned, but the last word of the book? Hope.
Seems kinda fitting.
