Reason for stopping: End of scene
1101 pages

Going to go get away from the computer for a little bit, I think, and perhaps nap. Not sure if I'll try to write any more today. The end of this book is turning into an exercise in endurance, but it is happening, dammit, and I will get it done this month.

I hope I never, ever get it into my head to write anything this massive again. There's plenty of time to get good and sick of a book this big.

I just wanted to say that I really do admire your staying power in tackling a novel of this size. I'm aiming for a mere 100,000 with the WIP as I know it will grow slightly in the re-writes. (My drafts always do. I had to stop trying to cut the fantasy whodunit because every time I did a revision pass to prune it in length, the blasted thing ended up even longer.)
Gak. *g*

I've never written anything longer that 120K before, and I gotta tell you, if I have my druthers, I won't again. *g* But sometimes the books decide for you....
