(yes, this is exactly how I dance)
I am happy to report, that Ignis is finished! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
It's pretty much exactly the length I thought it would be, 120k. Well, actually it's 126,000ish words, but considering I'll probably be doing a LOT of cutting, come editing time, my first guess will probably be the more accurate one.
What can I say about this book, guys? It's my favorite yet, I think. Probably because EVERY. SINGLE. THING. that I've been laying out for the past 3 books is finally coming to pass. Reveals that I've been holding to my chest, relationships that I planted as a tiny seed will finally blossom, events that I've been mulling over since I planned this book will finally blast through your brains as you read them.
It was probably the toughest one yet for me to write (I know I say that every time) because of all the build up. And I'm not gonna lie, the last 5 chapters of this book wrung me out like a wet washcloth. Just for the sake of my ability to edit, I'm going to have to put this thing aside for like a month and let my brain breath.
But it's finished. And it's glorious. And I'm sooo sooooooo soooooooo happy with where I took the characters this time around.
