Yes, there’ll almost certainly be another rewrite further down the line and, if I’m lucky enough to get a publishing deal, further edits and copy editing and all that, but right now I’m breathing a big sigh of relief.
I finished the book.
Now I can enjoy the fact that my kids are on summer holiday and hang out with them properly (rather than saying distractedly ‘in a minute’), read (yay!), watch films and television, and say ‘remember me?’ to my husband. I may even go outside. Hurrah!
Oh, and tomorrow I’m meeting up with my awesome family to watch the The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy live with Neil-frakking-Gaiman.
I’m also taking a little internet break. I’ll leave you with Ze Frank on finishing stuff. Hope you all have a great week!

Well done!!! You should be uber-proud of yourself. Can’t wait to see you and your brood tomorrow…
Thank you, Matthew. See you tomorrow – yay!

Hope you enjoy Hitchhikers, it’s awesome. We only had Jon Culshaw, not Neil Gaiman. We drank a whole hell of a lot of jynnan tonnyx though…
I’m sure I will…Thanks, Alistair!
Wooo!! Well done! I really hope you did a little dance right after you typed the last word. Celebrations should always involve dancing 😉 Congratulations!
Thanks, Shireen! There was a little dancing and a lot of wine 🙂
