Last night I wrote the two hardest words to write in a novel. I would not say that my novel is now complete, but that I have finished the first draft. It is presently just under 59,000 words. I rushed through the final sequences, and I expect them to increase in length. But the important thing is that I did get to what I believe is the right place to end the novel. Now comes the two more difficult tasks of editing and finding an agent.
