And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a draft.

It’s a little short at 97K, but there are scenes I need to go back and add (at least 3 of them) and a bunch of clean-up work to do before I turn it in, but that’s a draft. Which means I am officially Out Of Contract (eeee!) and On Vacation for the remainder of 2010.

Yeah, yeah, I’ve got to do the clean-up work and turn it in, and I have two sets of proposals to write (because out of contract is a scary place to be!), and three or four short stories, and eventually there will be revisions on both SPIRIT DANCES and WAYFINDER, but I have basically written two books in the first four months of this year, and at this point everything else is detail work. I’m *done*.

Holy crap. I’m done!

It's pretty much as done as my value of the word gets, I think. :)

I meant "done" for an interesting sense of "nothing more to do."

*looks innocent*

I still think it fits my definition of "done". :)
