It's done. Chapter Twenty-Five, all 9,503 words of it, is now written.
It's a long one, but I'm pretty sure it's worth it. I think once you come to read it you're going to find it flying by far quicker than you expect.
This, of course, marks the final proper chapter of the book. All that remains now is the Epilogue, which is not going to be anything like as long. And then, crazily, that will be the first draft complete.
I can't write it tonight. I need to sleep. But the end is very much now in sight. More of an update soon.
