On time, if a bit under budget. I’m going to have to add some significant chunks to the manuscript to bring the first part up to speed with the ending — but I finally found the ending I love.
Hated having to kill off one of my favorite characters, of course. I hadn’t planned on doing it, and just realized this morning this particular character’s death was the final piece in the puzzle. The ending worked, and I think Gods Old and Dark is going to work, too. So I’ll print the thing off in manuscript form today, and start into revisions tomorrow. And even though I got a few weeks extension on my deadline, I might not need it.
Today was a GOOD writing day.
I’m going to stay mostly off the site at least until the book is done and in the mail to my editor. But I’m feeling better, though still sleeping way too much. Things are looking up.
