Just wanted to share briefly what is making me so happy today: my first trilogy – my first series of any kind – is finished.
This afternoon I capped off the story with as neat and tidy ending that I could muster. The story of Frick, Bee, Ash, Rachany, Ruthy, Haddock, Hatty, Ulrich, and Monroe is finished, and I’m very happy with how it turned out.
In a different post, I’m going to chronicle what I learned about writing by taking on this project, but I couldn’t let my happiness remain inside.
I know. I know. I have months of revision ahead of me.
But who cares?
There were days in the past when I couldn’t see how the ending I wanted was going to connect with what I had already written.
And then, little by little, it worked.
It didn’t hurt that for the past nine days, I’ve had nothing to do but WRITE! It’s been awesome since I was able to crank out the final 25,000 words.
The result is this a 200,000 plus word trilogy.

To celebrate: here’s the first mock-up of the cover.
