It's nearly one in the morning and I've been working off and on all day, but I am happy to report that Book 2 is finally done! I wrote more than 4,000 words today, with most of it going into the final fight scene. I know that the final fight scene still needs some work, but at least it's "down on paper."
From here, I will do one quick edit (something that will take less than two weeks) and then it will be shipped off to my lovely agent for the first viewing. After she gives me her thoughts, I will edit this bad boy right up until it is due to be sent into my editor at the start of May. For me, the editing process takes just about as long as it does to write the rough draft.
I promise that I will discus the process more and why this draft isn't technically the first draft of Book 2 later. Right now, I am crawling into bed where I plan to enjoy a very good night of sleep.
Oh, and for kicks. I discovered this image over on Keri Arthur's blog the other day. I simply fell in love with it. (Gee, I can't imagine why...) Have a great night and if I don't catch you again, have a great holiday weekend and a beginning of Spring.
