Coming to the End

Well, thanks to all the great writing sprints we've had, I am almost done with my work-in-progress.  All the months of research, drafting, and editing is quickly coming to an end.  I hope today is the day where I get to write the end, but it might not be.  It depends on how much computer time I get this afternoon.

But I'm still happy to be at this point.  My critique team is busy helping me make things better (I'll be sending the end to them soon so they're not in suspense!) and soon the revision process will also be at an end. It's like my little book journey is almost at its destination and I'm getting excited.  Yes, I know there will still be two more rounds of revision and a final copyedit, but still, I'm CLOSE.

It's a great feeling.

It sort of reminds me of how I feel after I finish reading a really great book---like I didn't want it to end, but it was SO worth the read.

Read any good books like that recently?  How's your writing coming?

I'm so sorry I forgot last night's sprint. I did see that Jon was able to write with you. Yay! And I'm glad you're so near the end of your rough draft. That is exciting.

We missed you last night!

As for the new WIP it's not technically a rough draft anymore. It's seen quite a few revisions and is nearing THE END. Like the true end. The it's almost ready for readers end. That's why I'm so excited! :) Can't wait for you to read it.
