novel progress report - done?

Um, I'm not sure that I'm ready to say this, but I think I just finished writing Empire Ship. Wow, holy cow. I wrote something like 35,000 words in less than three weeks. That plus I also did a whole lot of living. What an amazing three weeks these have been. Somehow I'm still alive. I feel like a genius. Go call the Weekly World News.

Details:
. Final word count is 133,771 - a gain of nearly 5000 words from the last update (128,900). Wowza, no wonder I feel like curling up under a rock and dying.
. Final page count of 438 - a gain of 15 from the last update (423).
. No mood music assistance these last two days, except Kij's purring, the music of rain on terra-cotta paving stones, and the papery sound of wind through the palm trees outside our balconied room.

Um, that is all, I guess. I expect the last bit will need some re-finishing, but I'm done writing the novel!
Yay me!

Exhaustedly yet Satisfiedly,
Chris
