I did finish! Just! It was tough though >.< And it is in my prose folder in my gallery if you would like to read it! I will be taking it down at the end of Dec/beginning of Jan though so I can edit it to send to publishers!
Since this is a sequel I'm working on, although I can't go crazy in terms of pacing, it does bring to mind how many small details I have to consider in the follow-up work. And how tightly woven it was then.
Since keeping that in check is what I like to see in sequels, versus making everything bigger and bigger until it all blows up, this is more an exercise in restraint than putting words on paper.
