First Draft Done!

I finished my first draft which, as I suspected, came up short at 37,800 words. The planned add-in chapters are gonna make it so much deeper. Lots of goodies--conflict, character, and of course more romance between Rachel and Nathan.

I'll take a short break (as long as I can anyway) and then add in those chapters and scenes. Then I'll take a week off followed by a hard edit. That should be fun to track. :/
