What a wonderful feeling

Done!

Okay, not completely done, but done all the big stuff. I just finished my revisions on the last chapter of GIVING UP THE GHOST. While there is at least one read-through to come before I'm completely done, that will just be minor tweaking and adjusting.

Oh, such a relief! I love 'The end'. ;)

For anyone interested, the word count has decreased--from 72,000 words pre-this-revision to 63,000 now. Much was chopped, and the story is better for it.

Now I take a break (which means, start poking at THE HALFWAY HERO again--the muse does not understand this concept of "break"), and then come back to the manuscript in a few days and do that read-through. And if all is well, I will sent it off, and buy myself Rock Band to celebrate!
