At 10:40 PM Tuesday, August 9, I finished the second novella in the Libby Fox series. I finished almost 10,000 words ahead of where I was supposed to be at this point. I wrote 2800 words tonight, which is a first for me since starting ROW80. That may not be a lot of words for some of you, but it’s a lot for me. My hands hurt, my butt hurts from sitting…but my heart is light. 🙂

I agonized a little over the ending. It’s probably going to make a few readers mad, but it will also make them want to read the final novella if they want to finish the story. (I still think it could be read as a stand alone story.) And I did put at the end to watch for the next novella in December. Yeah, I know it’s not a good idea to mentioned a release date, but unless something really bad happens, I should be able to do it. I wasn’t sure whether or not to end it the way I did, but in the end, I had to do what felt right. I was in Libby’s head so deeply that I had to write what she wanted me to.

So now what do I do? Of course there will be editing, but I also should be able to work on my short story that I started. And I’m also getting Starfane ready for print. But top priority will be editing right now. Wow…I can’t believe I’m done.
