I have just finished writing Ch 20 of Quenta Narquelion, otherwise known as 'Ghost Feanor whizzing around Beleriand' (though I've only posted up to chapter 18 so far.  The whole thing is 117041 words and 23 chapters long, which is by far the single longest thing I have ever written.   Chapters 19-23 still need final checks, edits and revision, but still, the plot is all written and  I think it reads reasonably well.   I originally had hopeful plans to write the whole thing before I started posting it so I could leave it and re-read it and give it final edits... but oh well.  At least I finished it, and have managed to post a reviewed and edited chapter every week...

I don't know why why or how this happened, but I still feel an enormous sense of nebulous achievement.

(No painting this week, because I've got three things that I'm working on, and none of them is quite finished yet. )
