Chapter 18 goes down early. Woo! Some of that is chopping out irrelevant bits, but mostly it’s that I’ve rewritten the back half of the chapter to make more sense. Also, ending with a bang always helps.
I get about 1500 words of Chapter 19 done as well, then scrawl on the last few chapters, outline a coda, and write line edits on a little of Chapter 1. I think I can do this.
