I've hardly poked my head above the parapet this week as I've been madly trying to finish CAPTIVE. And late last night I finally sent it off to my CPs for their verdict. What a relief it was to type THE END, although as always it's a kind of bittersweet relief - am quite choked to say goodbye to Bren and Morwyn!

Anyway, I'm not even going to think about it now until I get the crits back, so this morning I informed my daughter I was going to clear up the house as I'd finished my book. She obviously saw the manic gleam in my eye as she told me to go and start the next one instead. Huh?

Well I say you most likely aren't done with your characters in Captive yet! There are still the edits. So a nice revisiting will be in order. I always like that part of edits.

That's true, Kaye. Already my CPs have found some tangles I need to sort out!

Mel, it made me laugh too but seriously, you can hardly see the floor for the dust bunnies!!!

Congrats on finishing. I know the feeling of missing characters well.

LOL about the house cleaning. That's the sort of thing I'd say.

Congratulations on finishing Captive, Christina. That "aah" feeling is one of the best things about writing, I reckon.

Funny about the cleaning!

Phew..I knew you could do it sooner, rather than later. Congratulations on finishing Christina. :)
