Finished? Yeah, I Guess So

Once again, I wrote this and forgot to post it...  Sorry it's late.


Last night, I finished Untitled Fantasy.  At the time, I wasn't sure I was finished.  In fact, I said something on FB about it being finished unless my brain said otherwise while I was trying to fall asleep.  But my brain was quiet.  Well, other than starting the next book.  That didn't last long, though.  I told my brain to shut up and it did for a change.  Best night's sleep I've had in weeks.

Now I need to let the book marinate for a while.  A week.  Maybe two.  Maybe less.  The story will tell me when it's ready to be edited.  

I guess I really need to find a title for the damn thing.  Everything I think of sounds lame at this point.  No biggie.  Rumor Has It was 'Duke Noble 1' until it was time to make the cover.

From here, I need to wade into the book and decorate.  It needs paint and furniture.  Or frosting and fondant.  Whatever metaphor suits you.  

Anyway, now I can relax a bit.  This story I started in 2011 is finally done.  I'm pleased with it overall.  It ain't perfect, but its imperfections can be sanded away and polished up.  Yay for edits.

Oh, here's another song for you.  This one really speaks to the muse for me.  Bottom of the River by Delta Rae.  Watch the video.  It's totally cool.  I think she's supposed to be a witch being dragged out of her house in the middle of the night and taken to the river.  But she gets them in the end.  Hehe.  Fun.


  1. Yay for The End...or at least the initial prep and marinade time. You'll get it seasoned just right after it gets tender. ;) (I'm hungry for beef right now. LOLOL)

    And you've turned me into a Delta Rae fan. That's an awesome song and video. Right now, I need "Boston" and Celtic music for my Irish Mob Wolves. 😉

    Enjoy your weekend! You deserive the break after working so hard on the frist draft! And YAYAYAYAY!!!! again. You did it!

  2. Congratulations on finishing! Woohoo! Party time! Or cooking time... ;-)
