However. After throwing away multiple attempts that ended up as a cut file of literally 450K words, last night I finished a draft for the first time in over two years! And it doesn't suck! I mean at least no more than a first draft should. All first drafts inherently suck. It's in their nature.
Enjoy the approaching fall weather (or spring, if you south of the equator) and I'll see you at the end of the month!
Oops, calendar fail. See you next week; not the last week of the month. Writing brain.
