close to the finish
I'm probably no more than a fortnight, if even that, from finishing the first draft of Stealing Fire. Like everything else I've written, it looks like it's going to come in at just about bang on 130,000 words. It's still pretty rough, like first drafts usually are, but I think this time I'm only going to take a few days off before I get started on the second draft. There's not a huge amount of time before I have to get it to the publishers, so I've got my work cut out.
