Right up to the last minute, the story kept punching me—I kept finding better ways to do things. I got an absolutely unanticipated but just-right ending to the episode.
And added damn near 10,000 words in the process.
But I’m done, I love it, the printer is humming merrily away, and I’m going to hand off my manuscript to my editor tomorrow.
This means next week, I write Lesson 2 of HTWAS. And next Friday, we resume class.
God, I’m fried. I’m going to sleep as much of this weekend as I can manage.
