It’s a good day today.
After a very long slog (years, really), I’m finally “done” with my sword and sorcery serial (which I’ve re-re-retitled back to The Glamour of the God-Touched Series. There are many reasons it’s taken so long, not the least of which is that I’ve repositioned them between novellas and novels and novellas a couple times (and that I didn’t actually know there were eight parts until I actually “finished” the seventh). But I think they are in the form they belong in now.
They feel right to me.
I finished my final read-through about ten minutes ago, and I’m finding it hard to get my mind around the idea that the base creative aspect of the work is done. This is a weird thing. I’m happy. But, I also can barely remember a time when the item “write that sword and sorcery serial” wasn’t somewhere on my long list of things to do. So amid the happiness is also a sense of bitter good-riddanceness that is not very becoming of me.
Don’t get me wrong. There is still work to be done in the production phase, but that’s a different beast. A different beast all together.
What am I going to do next?
Well, there’s this project plan I’ve got, you see … but first I think I’ll go work out.
Have a great day.
