so glad it’s over…for now

Yippety! Did it again! Shadow Walk, my dark fantasy horror novel, is roughly, very roughly, done! In a little over 50,000 words. Now I get to ignore it for the month of December and work on A Lamentation of Swans, which, I must confess, is my absolute favorite of all my unfinished novels. I love Shadow Walk too, but just a little bit more love goes to A Lamentation of Swans because it is such a fantastic fantasy! And it’s such a sparkly fairy light glimmering there among the tree shadows.

Because I carried Shadow Walk around in my head for so long, the writing wasn’t as hard as with my previous NANO novels, but there were days this month when my brain leaked out of my ears. Anyway, I can calm down now and breathe freely. Until next November.
