Shazam! The first draft of Leads & Lynxes is done! I’m feeling a lot like this cat—tired but ready to party!

My goal for the book was 60,000 words. I came in only 11,000 words over, so I’m happy.

This book is the first in a trilogy, and it has a tighter arc than the Gargoyle Guardian Chronicles, so I’ll need to brainstorm on the plots of books 2 and 3 to make sure I have everything set up right in L&L. And of course it needs edits.

But that’s next week. I’m off to celebrate, and then tomorrow I’ll be catching up on a lot of tasks I’ve been putting off in lieu of writing. (Writing is very addictive, you guys!)
