Blink is Done

I know I said I was going to write another chapter, but I had a brainstorm. I wrote the best friggin' scene to end the damn novel. So good, I've almost got myself crying.

Adding any more would just kill the feeling of the end, so no more for this book.

I'll probably do another edit or two to tighten or to better expand on certain areas throughout the rest of the book. But the end is the end is the end.

THE END

I love it when a plan comes together.

Of course, IMO, it's a bit short now. I was shooting for a 90K word novel, and I'm just under 80K, but thems the breaks. You write the story that needs to be written as concise as is possible to convey the idea. Voila.

A few more tweaks and it'll be ready to send to beta readers. Yay.

I'm feeling pretty jazzed about finishing. I'm already itching to read through it again. But I promised myself I'd let it simmer and come back to it with fresh eyes.

It's just so darned hard to wait.
