Done and Done

Thanks for forwarding the pic, Ryan.
I finished my WIP today. And its only taken forever.  It's off to a few kind souls who have agreed to be readers and then to my agent. While, I'm waiting for responses, I'm going to convert Shardai to paper.  Gosh I feel so industrious. grin.
I ran across another quotable. This one was from Sue Grafton's 'C' Is For Corpse. "I'm not a process person. I like goals and closure, the arrival instead of the journey itself." Can't you relate with that? Whether you're writing, sewing, cooking, or reading a good book, aren't you excited to start and impatient to finish? I know I am.
So what's on your agenda? Have you finished an 'its taken forever project?
Oh, and by the way, may your Monday pass quickly:)

  2. Congratulations on making it across the finish line. I does feel good to have it done. I know the feeling though it was fleeting... I recently finished my wip and then felt I needed to punish myself some more (yes I'm crazy) and now I'm kneed deep in heavy rewrites. uggg. But I'll relish the day I can finish my wip--again. Thanks for stopping by my blog, happy to follow you back.

  5. Congrats on finishing!! I'm THIS close to finishing my current WIP (two years of effort). I have to say, though, I do enjoy the process. I love coming up with the story. But, yeah, huge relief to get it done too.

  6. Yay for finishing! Now the fun part: edits. I do mean that. Some people despise edits. I get off on them--because what's better than taking something and making it sparkle? (Unless it's a vampire.)

    My big project? Book release. *deep breath* One day at a time.

  9. Hey Elise, Thanks for the follow!
    The rewrites are challenging aren't they?. I've already got a couple of responses to my wip and what I'm hearing is more backfill, so I'm going back to it. Good luck with yours;)
