Coming to the end

The beginning was so long ago.  Yet, I still remember sitting in the writing club meeting pounding out my almost 1 page of a story for our round-robin.  I never believed in the idea until I got it back.  That was in November of 2009.  For 2 and a half years my writing struggled against my school work.  Then graduation!  Then NaNoWriMo!  And tonight I sat down and wrote the final paragraphs linking the bulk of the story to the ending I had written a year ago.  A grand total of 3 years, 1 month and 22 days from the start to the finish.

I’m in a mixed state of emotion right now.  The journey should feel like it’s over but I know so much more has to be done.  I have a ton of “was”s that need to be removed or at least looked at.  I’m pretty sure I may have some incongruities along the way and I know I have not documented every major character and all the spells and timeline and all of that good stuff I need to cross-reference with at any point.  But that can all wait for tomorrow because tonight, I’m done.

This is the Novel Mage saying, *POOF*

  1. Ah, I just finished a project myself that took three years to write. I know how it feels. There is that sense of elation, the surreal sense of an ending, but also a bit of a loss. Congratulations on your work. I am sure it was worth all the effort.
