Well, I'm kind of in shock. I've just finished writing Moy Tura Echoes, all 95k of it. And its only taken 3 years (on and off).

Seriously, I think I am in shock. I thought I'd be excited, delighted, over the moon or something. Instead I'm just... not.

Maybe the joy will hit tomorrow. Maybe I know how much work I have ahead of me to whip it into shape.

But in the meantime. OMG. I'm finished.

Off to bed to collapse in exhaustion...

Wooooot! Huge, major congrats! I think a little shellshock is normal. It'll hit you eventually. *G*

Thanks. Still waiting and starting to work up next idea because MaNoWriMo isn't over yet! Eep!

I know just what you mean RF, I just finished my 135K edit and now I am like 'OMG, am I still a year away from putting this out for agents?' All this work and it just never seems to end. I wonder if I will ever get that 'awesome' feeling we should be having for all this labor.

Yep, I'd say a bit of editing is in order first... That might make me feel better. But I'm taking a break from it first to hopefully give myself a bit of perspective. That's the plan anyway.

Congrats. That's a huge achievement. It'll probably just take a little time to sink in.

WOOOOOoooooooo hhooooooo

no, wait first you need to sit back and look smug, then later you can edit...

You can of course, m'dear, but let me edit it first!!! Just to get rid of the embarrassing mistakes at least.

Yay! Congrats. You're probably too tired to be anything at the moment. Wait until you wake up tomorrow and realise that you're finished! :)

It's starting to sink in. But the prospect of editing it... Oy!

When you wake up don't forget the fancy dinner out and champagne! We writers need to celebrate at every chance we get. ;-)

That's an idea. Will you babysit??? ;)

Actually, I'm out to a dinner dance on Saturday - not specially for me or anything, but I could pretend. Failing that I could demand a take away tonight. :)
