July. Does that mean it's going to stop raining?

FINISHED DRAFT ONE OF THE NOVEL LAST NIGHT, technically around 3 this morning but I think it counts as an extension of yesterday so therefore I MADE MY END OF JUNE DEADLINE! Hurrah for arbitrarily self-imposed time limits! It's around 87,000 words; I'm half-convinced that much of it is bollocks, and it certainly needs a lot of fleshing out in the second draft (for research reasons), but the story is down and I'm fairly happy that I will know what to do with it when it comes to rewrites, and perhaps most importantly I can put it down for the next two to three months and concentrate on the PhD (which starts tomorrow. I am celebrating Draft 1 by taking today off and...erm, packing up my room. My life is a constant round of joy and excitement!).

ALso, I have done something painful to my foot in yet another toe-stubbing incident. It seemed fine at the time (once I had checked that my toes were not in fact scattered all over the kitchen floor), but then I was awoken this morning by the pain. Dear self: please work out where your body ends, and stop bashing bits of it into other things.
