Had a great writing day on Sunday, despite feeling migrainey at times. I started the epilogue today, so THE END is finally within my sights. I expect to type it within the next day or two. Can't frickin' believe it. Of course, this is only the end of the first draft, because even though I've done 3rd and 4th drafts of certain chapters, the final third has been a long, painful extraction.
Once I'm completely finished with the final wrap-up chapter, I'll start from the beginning and re-write a scene at a time. Finishing this book is completely surreal. I've never thought past the end, because, I guess, I never really believed it would ever be done. So post-BVA is a long, dark road. Kind of scary. I've never had nothing to work on. I guess I'll putter around, write some shorts and submit them, maybe enter some contests before starting the next novel.
I'm getting ahead of myself, though, because this final re-write will realistically take a month.
