the writer in me

Whoo-hoo!  The first draft of Top Secret Project #2 is finally done! :may22

Whew, it took me long enough, didn’t it? :may6   I swear, I didn’t think I’d ever find just the right words to complete the last chapter & epilogue of this story. :may30

Getting through the end of some stories is so easy; they just sort of wrap themselves up in a nice little bow.  Or I’ve had the ending in my head almost from the beginning & am so familiar with what I want to happen that it practically writes itself. :may9

And then there are some tales, like this one, that are like crawling through the desert…tapping maple syrup in January…following a snail past the finish line… :may16

Which isn’t to say that the end of Top Secret Project #2 isn’t fabulous—because it is!  In fact, I’d venture to say it may actually be one of the best Happily-Ever-Afters I’ve ever written. :may15   It is sweet, sexy, romantic, &—in my humble opinion, anyway—infinitely sigh-worthy. :may21

I can’t wait for you guys to read this one & let me know what you think! :may34

The next step, of course, is proofing & polishing.  I’ll need to sit down & read through from the very beginning to be sure it reads as smoothly as possible. :may20

Part of me is excited to do this & part of me isn’t looking forward to it at all.  I mean, once the story is finished, can’t it just be done already? :may24

But no!  I still have work to do.  And the sooner I get to it, the sooner I can move on to…Top Secret Project #3.

      Thanks, Donna! I spent all of today assisting the handyman as he did a ton of work & had to wake up about 4 hours early to do it, so I may just take you up on that. :may13 :may29 :mat27

      Thanks, Mary! Really excited about this one; I just love the hero & heroine. :may21

      And it’s actually loosely connected to Secret Project #1, so you get to read that one first…then maybe get a sneak peek at this one before it comes out. :may14

      Secret Project #3, here I come! :may34
