So the status bar can be awesome for you fans, but this is a case where it seems like nothing is happening when in reality a whole lot is happening.
Basically I'm working on my second draft at the moment. Yes, two chapters still need to be written, but I realized I wanted to change a character motivation that's been troubling me that deals with those chapters, plus three before it. So I'm going through the whole book in prep for the finale.
So far I'm 9 chapters in, so far so good. I'm very happy with what I've seen, no need to change much, just pruning a bit here or there, small improvements and the like, typos as always, ALREADY. We hates the typos. First time I've even seen the book as a book and not as two separate stories, so that's always fun to view and to manipulate where and when you lot will get those lovely cliff hangers in time.
8 more chapters of that to get through. Plus 3 with partial rewrites, 2 to write, and like 7 I've never even done a readthrough on since I finished them (including the 3 that need partial changes). So yeah, whole lot of work and not a bit of it shows on the status bar.
Just wanted you all to know.
Close and closer to release, step by step.
