Work's been busy for me since the moment I stepped in the door, so here I am posting on my lunch break what I meant to post in the morning:
Neither headache nor stomachache could defeat me last night--only delay a little. I finished 'Beside the Embers'--my gift dialogue written just for ME! It is hard to express how fun it was to write something set after the end of my fifth book, to strew book 4&5 spoilers around like confetti, and not have to worry about it, to write about stuff that's been in my mind for some 13-14 years, and actually see it in words--to view the 'destination' that I've been aiming at for oh, so, so long. Just wow!
The 'inner Alyssa' was squealing at me last night, but heh heh, when I edit, I think I'm going to stomp on her and amp up the sap just a little bit more. 'Tis MY dialogue, after all!
I'm also happy with the notes I took for 'Gift' yesterday. That's entry #1 on my 'What's cooking...' page, and hopefully I can start writing it this weekend!
*strews some more confetti around* Huzzah! *grins* I meant to ask you about the dialogue the day you posted about it, actually. I'm glad to hear that it's finished and was as much fun and goodness as it sounds to have written it!
*huggles* Congratulations, me dear!
Heh, Alyssa doesn't think much of Geren showing any 'unmanly' emotion, so now I have this inner claxon that goes off if I head in that direction. ;)
It is! Except I've been running so fast ahead with writing and illustrations for writing, that the editing has fallen completely in arrears. Good thing Thanksgiving is coming right up!
