DONE. I turned in my manuscript. That does not mean I have turned in the last draft. It means I've turned in my manuscript. I'm already thinking about the holes in it, particularly the last three chapters. Moments of realization that must be reworked, cut, added, blah blah. But that's what days off and lots of sleep are for.

Larry and I are watching the LOTR trilogy as a reward. Tonight is the last half of III. I need to see Frodo get the ring to Mt. Doom. Kinda fitting. Except that no one comes back and tells him how to throw it in better, edits his journey and tells him to add a bit of trail here and there. Oh forget it, I just need to see that last glorious moment.

Yay!!! Oh yay yay yay!! It IS possible. Real people DO actually write drafts and turn them in to editors for comment. It DOES happen!!! Congratulations!
(And Frodo the Heroic had to do all his editorial work on the way to the due date. Your way's a bit less brutal, and I prefer it.)
