I typed an author’s two favorite words today, The End. The first draft is done! I have miles to go before I sleep, but completing the first draft is definitely reason to celebrate. Final word count: 66,136, which I believe makes it the longest book in the series.
Major, major, major (possible) revelation in this book. The only person who’s read it so far, (my wife) got mad at me. It had to be done. It was part of the plan all along, and as much as I hated to do it, I had to go through with it.
Still debating on whether to stick with The Land of the Dead as the title or just go with The Dead. I don’t want to tick off George Romero fans (of which I’m one), but I think I’m sticking with The Land of the Dead for now. His dead and my dead are completely different animals.
