*Squee*

I now have an actually complete draft. I'd missed one scene out during November, because there wasn't time to do the research, and I've just this moment finished it.

Chapters 1-28 have been edited once
Chapters 29-36 are still in need of editing

Once I've done 29-36, I'm going to think seriously about pace. I think what I'll do is make a kind of diagram of the emotional highs and lows and so forth and see if I think it needs altering. Something a bit like the 'beat sheet' recommended in Nail Your Novel (thank you [personal profile] bateleur for linking to it back in November).

I'm also going to think about making sure each of my three narrators has a distinctive voice. I've been doing a bit on that as I've been editing, but I know it needs more work.

Then I might be ready to start trying to interest agents in it...
