It is Done

I've finished it. I've finally, finally finished it!

Ancient Secrets.

And, there's no way to describe the thrill and excitement I'm feeling right now.

It's...AMAZING! It truly is.

No, it's not the first novel I've finished. But, that first novel was finished around 15 years ago.

This is, however, the first novel in my series. Actually it topped out at 968 pages, so it's probably the first two novels in my series.

I worked, not on this particular novel, but on finding exactly the right place to start my series, for a year. The storyline extends forward and it extends back and all the work I've done has not been in vain. I've ended up with quite a few novels in the series at least half finished. I can't complain about that.

But, back in June, it hit me. The perfect beginning to this world I love so much, the perfect showcase for characters I adore.

And, now, it's complete, in all its rough glory. It needs lots of work. It needs to be split apart. It needs many, many revisions.

But, it's done, in spite of everything in the world that has conspired to keep me from finishing. And, I feel very, very proud that I've managed to accomplish this even though, for a while, the world seemed to fall apart completely.
