and there was much rejoicing.
or there will be - once I get some sleep.
'cause I finished Vermillion today! Actually, I'd written the last chapter a couple of days ago but it needed an epilogue to wrap things up nicely and today at work when I should have been
working, I did it (mentally runs around throwing confetti and tooting a cheap horn)!
of course, writing it at work was a bit... interesting. Close your eyes, momcalling
*shhh* cause it's kind of sad at the beginning and my throat was closing up as I was writing and that damn phone kept ringing and I had to keep pulling down deep breaths so I could answer it without sounding like I was on the verge of crying (which is not what you're wanting to hear from the front desk clerk when you call a hotel to confirm your reservation - or ask a stupid question - guess which I got more of).
okay, you guys can open your eyes again.
anyway, I felt very pleased with the way it came out and really liked the ending for it's wham!bam!huzzah, ma'am! ahhhhhh awwww ending. Am quite pleased with myself at the moment and am treating to the ice cream in my freezer if anyone is interested. We have Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia and Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. Anything not claimed - I will be eating tonight!
and no, I'm not drunk. But they didn't have a 'smug' icon.
of course, now I can relax and know that I'm covered for the last few weeks that Vermillion has to post. I was worried there for a bit. But - another big project down and wow, after over ten years, I'm finally starting to finish stories I start.
I need to find the appropriate picture to end this with...
