To hell with process and finishing it today. I went ahead and finished it last night.
LED TO THE SLAUGHTER: THE DONNER PARTY WEREWOLVES is done. At least, the first draft is. A revision next week, and then I'm sending it to my editor.
I'm going to make a hard copy so I can make changes myself over the next month while she reads it, and anyone else I can bamboozle into reading it.
I'm rethinking whether I want to do heavy rewriting. I kind of like the briskness of it, the simplicity. I may just concentrate on polishing what I've written, add a few things here and there, change a few things here and there, but not look to change it too much.
Anyway, I'm done with a readable draft and it feels good.
