The announcement you've all been waiting for...

I'M DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm utterly exhausted and kind of in shock at the moment, but just typing those words did kinda bring it home and made me a little teary-eyed.  Appropriately, even though chunking, the last scenes I wrote were the end of the final chapter and the epilogue.  Alec and Elspeth have their HEA at last.

Final word count: 111,587 (give or take)

418 pages

It's completely SFD - emphasis on the S - and riddled with brackets but it is a complete, contiguous story after 18 months of work.

I'll be excited once I've had some sleep, but for now, I have to get ready for work.

Aggh, it keeps eating my posts! Third time lucky!!

YAY! GO JENNY, GO!! WOOOOHOOOO!

We knew you'd get there in the end- the long hard slog is over. Time to go relax (yes, even work counts as relaxation right now)

Dude, you're probably going to end up with three messages from me now, all saying roughly the same thing- lol.

Alright Jenny!

Way to go!

Don't worry about the SFD thing. For now, sit back and enjoy the feeling. You did it - you wrote a novel!
