My summer baby is all grown up

The Trickster Society is now complete at 90,000 words--precisely the length I'd hoped for! It needs a lot of tinkering and editing and probably some rewriting in spots, but I think it's pretty solid.

Even better, I finished it without haste but in time to rev up for the first fall project. After a light editing pass on Trickster Society, I plan to return to my unnamed romance book. I'm hoping to finish it either before NaNo or during NaNo, depending on how much work I need to put into it. I can't remember how many words it has, but it doesn't need to be too long--something like 55,000 words, I think.

It feels good to finish a project. This one took me longer than usual. I started it in May and finished now at the end of August. A summer book, who would have believed it!

Thanks! I'm just so glad it's done and didn't turn out to be 150,000 words. :)

You're a machine. Congrats.

Jameson--Sure you will. Just keep working on it.

Richard--Thanks!

Cate--I am a machine of probably-bad writing. At least I amuse myself.

Aaron and Natalie--Thanks! It does feel good. (Except that now I have to start thinking about the synopsis.)
