A ritual from an energy-healing technique that shall remain nameless ends thusly: it is done, it is done, it is done.
This is meant to be the signal that the healing has taken place. But today I am co-opting it to announce that the novel is done. Finished, finito, fini, DONE.
I can hardly believe it.
I can also hardly believe how carefree and energized I feel–ready to tackle new projects, and return to some old ones as well–like organizing my office. It is bad, I tell you. If I took a picture of it you would be shocked.
But first it is off to New Mexico for a week.
No matter how painful, and I know it will be, I promise to share the ups and downs of the novel submission process. Current status: query sent to agent I have personal recommendation for. Please think good thoughts.
DON'T FORGET THE CONTEST to win a copy of The Midnight Disease. You have until the end of today to comment on that post and then I will choose a winner, randomly. And let me just say, as of now, your odds are very good. So get on over there and make them bad.
