nanowrimo day 30 – winner!

Whew!  Just under the wire, too.  The final word of the final chapter was written on the final day, and that word was “mage.”  It’s not as breathtaking as “scar,” perhaps, but I’ll take it.

Now, to finish the story and find a nice dark drawer to put it in for the next year, or maybe ten…
