The Edits Are Done!
It's after 11:30 p.m. My eyes are drooping, my dog is wondering if I'm completely insane, and I know that 7 a.m. is going to come way too early tomorrow.
But my novel is done. Completed. Finished.
All new material to be written has been, well, written. All edits that needed to be done are done. All thoughts that I wanted to incorporate have been incorporated. Well, you get the idea. :-)
Now I have to get my synopsis in shape to reflect the changes, format the manuscript (I have to write in TNR, single-space for some reason, otherwise my creativity flees), print it out, and send it off.
And then...it's time to work on the next one! Whether or not I give myself a break in between novels is unclear. I really don't want to take a break. I'm anxious to work on my WWII inspirational - that will probably be the next project. I'm about half-way finished with it, so if I concentrate hard enough, I might be able to complete it in a few months.
So tell me...where are you at with your writing projects?
