I finished! At 12:30 am, total 93,246 words. So the entire 3-book series is done! At least, unless that one little niggling idea for a 4th book ever works itself into a viable plot, LOL! But for now, FINIS!!! And now I *officially* have 5…. count them, FIVE! …finished manuscripts! The 3 Wishes & Dreams, and the first 2 of Sons of the Desert.
It’s a bit late now, but tomorrow I have to decide on a reward for finishing… because I *believe* in rewarding every victory!! I want to jump and cheer, but it’s so late no one is awake for me to call and yell my happiness at! <sulks>
Of course, that’s just the first draft. Now I need to run it through Word’s spell and grammar check, do a full read-through, and then start getting it out to beta readers. But still… YIPPEEEEE!!!
ADDENDUM: So I took myself out to Village Inn along with my Kindle, and had their awesome pot roast and mashed potatoes for a celebration dinner. I also found the most FABULOUS sequined pillow cover that’s got dual-colored sequins, and you brush them one way or the other to make patterns! I’ve already ordered it, I can’t wait for it to get here, how fun! I can sit here and doddle with the sequins while I’m *thinking* 🙂
