My head is splitting, but I got there - couple of hours behind [livejournal.com profile] nikkiling2, but on the same day :D. Still have two short and one longer and rather central scene to write before the book's done, but I'm determined to finish before midnight on the 30th. After which, there's a week off to sort out a few urgent edits, add a few touches, and then it's on to Book Two before the momentum vanishes. Just - slower, lol.

I have been wanting to write a version of this story since 2006 and could never work out where to begin, and I've finally DONE IT!!! I cannot tell you how good it feels, even if most of the characters went off and did things I never imagined - like, the so-called main character who I could only coax to make occasional appearances, or the short-term secondary character who developed ideas above his station and will feature prominently in Book Two. No names, they know who they are.

Weird thing is I've always seen myself as a slow writer, someone who writes in short, sharp bursts, but I think it's more that I have the attention span of a goldfish. Chasing Nikki's total has kept me very focused over the last four weeks *g*. And even weirder thing? I've enjoyed doing this SO MUCH.
