Hard to Say Goodbye

I just typed THE END on my WIP. Sniffle.

As I was racing towards the last couple of paragraphs I was getting all choked up inside! But Kim and Jack had talked enough, there was nothing left for them to say in the context of the novel, and I just had to do it.

So I did.

One hour and 15 minutes before my kids broke up from school for two weeks, so how's that for brilliant timing?

But it still hurts! I love Kim and Jack and don't wanna say goodbye.


I guess I need to sort out agent subs now...

Hopping on the Last Leg

Only half a chapter to go and I've finished my WIP!


Hey why am I so excited? Although I'm always relieved to reach The End on the other hand I get awful withdrawal symptoms at having to say goodbye to my main characters.

It's like saying farewell to very close friends. Oh dear, how sad is that!

Then again I am a writer and half the time I live in an imaginary world, populated by imaginary people living exciting (although, um, imaginary...) lives...

Oops. Yeah, pretty sad all round really!
