Okay, to start today I have to say thanks to the awesome Stina Lindenblatt for giving me this award.
Today is a good day. Last night I stayed up till crazy time (2am, the lunacy) and finished a round of edits on my MS. But I couldn't sleep, I had a creative buzz and needed to finish it.
My heart thumped in my chest as my protagonist reached the end of her adventure and, for a moment, I forgot what the end was.
I've taken my time to get to the last few chapters that I got worried. See, that crazy girl raises her head again. But hey, I shouldn't apologise for loving (and being worried) about my characters. We ALL do right?
I know there will be more edits. I can feel it in my bones that it's not quite there (plus my beta readers and crit buddies need to read it). The thing that has made me feel good is that I've got to the end of these revisions.
Which got me wondering if any of you guys get that feeling? Do you worry about your characters future? Do you hold your breath as you write/edit the final scenes and forget that you know how it ends?
Oh and here's a picture.
Because the Jedi kittens make me smile.
Happy Friday everyone.
