First Draft Complete

First Draft Length: 45,058 words

Things to do: The ending I think is good, maybe a bit upbeat, but that’s not a bad thing. That being said, the plot thread I end on needs to be brought up and reinforced, there isn’t really enough oomph to it right now, and it also doesn’t have as much screen time as the other romance…which due to the ending, isn’t appropriate.
Also, there are some plot holes in character motivation that need to be figured out. I’m not sure how yet, but when I do a reading, it’ll be come more clear.
The whole thing is also underwritten, another 15,000-20,000 words on top of my current count isn’t unthinkable.

Estimated Draft Page Length: 135-145 pages
This estimate comes from the 128 manuscript page length, without scene breaks or chapter breaks. The estimate includes insertion of scene breaks.
