The Last Word

Just wrote the ending of "Who Wants To Be A Hero?" - closing with a final line that has a very oh-no-here-we-go-again flavor. First draft word count: 125,429 (including chapter headings). It will lose some weight in editing, but it may gain some as I seek other opportunities to punch up the humor.

I will need some eyes on how the first episode or two flows before I start editing (specifically to discern if I'm on the right track with the POV and the epithets), but right now, I am definitely in cool-down mode.

And conversely, in warm-up mode ... two next-novel ideas fighting it out for mysterious dominance in the back of my head.

Congrats on finishing that first draft! Lots of people start but not many finish, so it's quite an accomplishment.
