First draft of the novel done!

Today, riding from Ft. William to Edinburgh, I dictated the last 5 scenes of the novel. It didn’t end just exactly the way I thought it was going to–nice surprise at the end. Once I transcribe these last 5 scenes, I can start on revision–and this novel will need lots because about 60% of it was dictated, so there are gaps in the┬ástory, changes in character backstory, place-holder names, etc. that I would normally have changed with ongoing revisions as I wrote, but are now still raw. I have a month to get it in shape for my beta readers.
