More accurately, the first-round braid is done. Forty-six chapters, which--if they average about 5000 words, which is what I try for--means it's 230,000 words, roughly.
Add in the discarded chapters (A, B, C, D, E...) and the total wordage written in this book this year was over 250,000 words--in other words, two good-sized novels.
No more tonight.
Tomorrow after church, it's the first round of revision-in-whole.
