Have You Ever Thought...
I thought I had finished Dreaming of the Wolf. Really I did. I wrote THE END, the acknowledgements, the dedication, the author bio. All the stuff that means I finished the book! Not that I won't be reading it over a couple of more times to make sure I'm really finished with it before I send it in.
But then here is a slip of a typewritten page I'd missed, that had some changes added in, and my trademark NOTE TO SELF, when I needed to add something in. Had I added it in? I figured I had. I thought I had. I hadn't.
What was the note? MAKE LOVE
You see, I had written that at another point in the manuscript too. And I had gone back and written that scene. So I thought that was it.
Would anyone miss it?
Probably. :) So the book is almost done. And I don't even have to write THE END now, because I have written THE END!
It's like all the guest author blogs I'm trying to get done. I had 10 to go, and then I did another 3 and somehow managed to have 13 to go. Hmmm. Sure, some had been added since I made the list...but that many? I'm back down to 10. And one of these days, I'll really be at THE END. Until the next book, and the next blog tour.
But the good thing about all of this is that it's really fun. Not like, let's say--weedeating the yard. Which is a neverending never-THE END-job.
So here is:
in anticipation of writing that last scene! Which will be fun to write anyway! It's almost THE END after all. :)
Have a terrific day!
