Had a great writing day on Sunday, despite feeling migrainey at times. I started the epilogue today, so THE END is finally within my sights. I expect to type it within the next day or two. Can't frickin' believe it. Of course, this is only the end of the first draft, because even though I've done 3rd and 4th drafts of certain chapters, the final third has been a long, painful extraction.

Once I'm completely finished with the final wrap-up chapter, I'll start from the beginning and re-write a scene at a time. Finishing this book is completely surreal. I've never thought past the end, because, I guess, I never really believed it would ever be done. So post-BVA is a long, dark road. Kind of scary. I've never had nothing to work on. I guess I'll putter around, write some shorts and submit them, maybe enter some contests before starting the next novel.

I'm getting ahead of myself, though, because this final re-write will realistically take a month.

  1. Well, at least you can see it now. And it doesn't have to take a month. You can buckle down if you want to. And I know, because I'm pretty well buckled.

    Or is that strapped? Hm.

  2. Congratulations on getting so far! And good luck on the end. A month? That would be fantastic. Can't wait to hear.

  3. Wooo!! The end is NEAR! That's awesome! You can do this sweetie, you really can. And as for other projects, who knows what will kindle in your brain between now and then? You just never know. :)

    So, good for you and keep the good work. *hugs*

  4. I've learned it doesn't matter if I buckle down, my output is the same no matter what. :)

  5. Thanks for the encouragement. :) *hugs back*

  6. That deserves some butt-shakin' happy dance!

    Glad to hear you have a fuzzy outline for the second book, too. Keep it brewing! :)
