Mission Accomplished!

Am I really finished? That was my first thought when I typed the last sentence, because I wasn't sure what the last sentence should be. But it feels really good to finish a project of this length. I haven't done that in...well, quite a while. Up until now, I've been focused on short stories and flash fiction.

The last scene was difficult as I didn't want it to be cliche' or preachy. I think it still needs work to get it right. But as they say, you can't edit a blank page.

Oh and the final word count? 40,266. We'll see where it lands after editing. I'm thinking of entering it in the Novel Rocket contest. Deadline is the 10th. Good motivation to clean up some things before I actually begin editing in a month or so.

Thank You, Lord, for helping me get it Almost Right.
