85,000 words

First draft of the new novel is complete. 85,000 words. I know the job isn’t over and drafting this bitch is gonna be painful later on, but it feels good to reach the end of a story so quickly. A standalone sci-fi story that will have more audience appeal than Felix ever did. I hope.

No details on what the story is about. It's still too early to give anything away. I suspect it will get a few thousand words longer and then a couple thousand shorter after edits, cuts and drafts. It will average out to my target of 90,000 words. I’m glad I did this now so I can begin the new year with a success! It's just what I needed!
