Nose to the Grindstone: cause for celebration

The braid is done. 

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.
