Today, a new rough draft has been brought forth into the world.
It still has a long way to go. I have a list over a page long of corrections, deletions, additions, insertions, clarifications, and enhancements that need to be implemented before it's even ready for the scrutiny of its first proofreaders. And that doesn't even count editing.
Heck it doesn't even have a real title yet.
But after starting this project over three years ago, and a 166,000 words later, there is now a rough draft.
Life is good :)
