I’ll start my read-through, Monday. And I am considering the possibility of a final very short chapter to point the book toward Book 4.
I have the empty file sitting in my template.
But I’m not sure the “summation” chapter is needed, and I won’t know until I’ve finished the read-through.
The book is currently 57,040 words long, and will gain a few thousand words during revision as I find places where I wrote thin. (It always happens in first draft, especially to me.)
Meanwhile, I made myself laugh writing the ending.
ANYWAY… I’m looking forward to outlining Ohio 4 starting on Monday, working off of what I’ve now built into the first three novels, and seeing if there’s anything in the first draft of Ohio 4 that will be worth saving.
I’m not holding my breath on that. But I did find some things worth keeping from the first drafts on 1, 2, and 3. So it could happen.
Have a fantastic weekend!
I’m looking forward to mine.
