The novel is finished.

I wrote every single day from November 4, 2015 to March 22, 2016. Final word count: 124,762 words. 493 double-spaced pages. This is a first draft, so that number will come down in the rewrite. But it’s done!

Now, time for a drink.

Oh, and the book is called The Underwood.

First draft of "The Underwood"

Random Writing Quote

"I wrote one novelette in that [Gothic] style just to see if I could do it. But that's not the way I think – I'm a realist. Whatever success I've had is because I am a realist: I make whatever I write about seem very realistic. I can only set my stories in realistic settings that I readily understand. I can't do haunted castles and dungeons. Or mystic kingdoms with little trolls running around ... I admire people who can do that – one of my favorite books is The Sword in the Stone. And I admire J.R.R. Tolkien a great deal. But I can't write that kind of fantasy."
Richard Matheson
