Setting: Confetti. That's really all you need to know.
Mafia Dude: Those three scenes have been taken care of, Boss.
Me, the Boss: *fist pump* Yes! Yes, yes, yes!! Yes! *bursts into giggles at really random times*
Mafia Dude: *confused*
Ahem. Okay, moving on.
YES I'M FINISHED I'M FINISHED I'M FINALLY FINALLY FINISHED!!!!!
Me, the Producer: I believe more confetti is in order.
Director: Of course.
Moving on again.
The third draft of the Ivolet story (which still has no title) is COMPLETE at 82,241 words!
I'm very happy. Can't you tell? Giddy, too. Those scenes are done (I was not looking forward to those scenes)!
I have 3 beta readers - who are not critiquers, just readers - who want to read it, soooooooo....yes.
Queries out by the end of October? I think yes. (But I know better than to hurry my query, don't worry. I'm just already psyched for my first NaNoWriMo EVER! More on that later.)
I promise to make more sense on Monday.
(For more on the timeline of this book, see this post from when I finished the second draft.)
For those interested, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is 85,141 words. See other word counts here.
