Yay! Finished!

Current work: very last readthrough of Medical
Listening to: Katie Melua
Reading: next on TBR

Finally the book came together and started to flow – it’s so lovely when it does that.

And I finished it last night. I need to do a final readthrough today, to pick up any plot holes and typos, but it goes to my ed today, before she goes off to the RWA conf in New York. And it’s going in a week before deadline, which makes me a very happy bunny: it means I’m back to being a professional author who meets her deadlines. (We’ll gloss over what I’ve been for the past couple of years, while life was a bit tricky, but I have been very grateful for my editor’s patience.)

The rest of today is going to be spent plotting my 50th M&B (yes, I did say 50th, and I would just love to get that one through before my 10-year anniversary in November) while I mess about on the piano and play with the dog. And then I have a week where I have school stuff or something on every single day and I’m up to my eyes, so I’m (whispers) taking a week off. In practice, it means I’m probably going to be messing about with the Nerdy Side Project. But it’s going to be nice to refill the well :o)

Yay congrats on finishing Kate. It's a great feeling to be able to type "The End" a whole week early. Have a great week "off" - although if I know you there's bound to be writing somewhere. And here's to the 50th. What a milestone that will be. Caroline x
