My novella is still going pretty well, and actually I'm expecting to have it finished by the end of the month.
Now, I know it's not the biggest writing project I've ever taken on, but if I do finish it, it will be not only the first book I will have had published (albeit through a self-publishing website), it will be the first project like that which I have undertaken and completed. Which, to me, is a big thing.
So, I'll raise my cold coffee again, and toast to a completed book by the open of 2015. Watch this space.
