Yes, I have finally reached the end. I have finished the first draft of my work in progress, my second novel, called Where Is The Number? It has taken me about a year and a half, with several delays and interruptions, not to mention a fairly large dollop of procrastination. Anyway, a few hours ago I finally completed the last chapter and was able to write “The End” in big bold letters at the bottom of the last page. The word count is 112,063 which is the most I have ever written about anything. After a pause for breath, I can start on the edits and rewrites, but the hard part is over. I think I’ll pour myself a glass of something!
