As the title says, my current WIP, Darklight, is finished. Well. Sort of!
Greetings, Fearless Readers. A dreadful night of zero sleep plus a day off from work ended up victorious - as I gave up trying to get any sleep last night, got out of bed and FINISHED MAH NOVEL! Well. Sort of. Back to where I began.
I'm torn, as it's been soooo long since I finished a novel, I feel I deserve to celebrate. However. This book has so many problems. It was written it over such a long period of time, it can't help but sound disjointed. It has too many characters just standing around in scenes, not doing anything. The romance I wanted never developed, because the love interest wasn't in enough scenes. It doesn't have a real antagonist. Luckily, the little brain has been percolating as I've gone along, and I believe I have all my fixes, it's just a matter of going back and writing them in. *deep sigh*
No! No dithering. No sighing over what must be. The first draft is done. As it's been so long in the making, I'm not going to let this one sit and fester, I'm going right back in with rewrites. Most of it is foreign to me since it's been so long, anyway. Then to beta. Then to polish and sub.
How are you in your WIPS, Fearless Readers? Finishing? Beginning? Dithering? Sighing? I'm going to relax for a day, and then seize this mutha by the horns and get back to work.
