When I come to the end of stories, there's a part of me that thinks... Already? Am I sure? Is this right? Should I end here? But as surreal as it feels, I think this is the right place to stop.

Which means I've just finished book 2. And I'm not kidding when I say *just*. I'm posting this here because it's proven a useful touchstone to remind myself how far I've come.

From a fandom that gave me the courage to believe I could finish something, which up until then I never had, to finishing book two of a set of three original stories... I've come a long way, and hopefully this is just the beginning. Now on to proofing for book 2, and seeding book 1 plus a final proof, then... Submitting it somewhere? It's the Holy Grail for me: to be a published writer. Hopefully... But anyway - for now:

256 pages. 119,520 words.

Go me!

Congratulations!

I remember reading your fic way-back-when, and hope that I can one day read your original work.

:-D Thank you!!! It's great to see you're still around as well!!! *waves*

It will still be a bit, unfortunately. I initially wrote book 1 and had my husband read it. He had some awesome plot twist suggestions that meant I'd have to go back and tweak the original story, so... I'm hoping by next Spring I'll be good to go. ;-)

I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

Funny you should mention me *being around* I am trying to post a rl bit but photobucket is not cooperating.

And I am struggling with my latest fic, chapter 3 of a Southland piece. In this case, the Muses is not cooperating. Life can be such a bitch sometimes!
