Can you hear me heaving a deep sigh of relief? I just finished the draft of Chapter 16. It's entirely too long, and I'm now at 65,205 words in the novel draft, but Chapter 16 is at least written. I can tweak and rearrange and re-word all I want now, but the important thing is that my Chapter 16 now exists, in however raw a form.
I'll start making notes on Chapter 17 tomorrow. I'm trying to put as much work into the novel as I can this week, since I'm going to have a busy weekend and my new job starts Monday. This may be the last week I have in a long time in which I can focus heavily on creative writing. I really want to finish this novel before the end of summer.
