Typing THE END

Last night, at midnight (No, really. At midnight.) I typed The End on CASTING STONES. It came in at about 90k. I'm really pleased with it. I'm doing a final read-through and polish and then sending it to Holly tonight.

Also, the title is going to stay the same. I'd considered changing it, but after discussing it with my CPs, I've decided the title CASTING STONES works.

To meet the deadline for this, I had to work like a ditch digger these last two weeks. I wrote 50k in TWO WEEKS. Yes, that's insane. But I'm really glad I now know I can do that. =)


  1. Yay--I'm SO happy for you. (Also green with envy and a tiny bit disgusted with myself for being so ridiculously unproductive, but we'll stick with happy. It's a nicer emotion.) Can't wait till the day I get to read it! :)

  2. Oh WOW thats exciting, Congrats!! I'm looking forward to typing The End on my revision. Love the title, btw!

  3. Congratulations! 50K in two weeks is some kind of awesome. (Hugs)Indigo

  4. JEEPERS! That is impressive!

    Congrats... and best of luck with all of it!

  5. YAY! You get cookies now!

    I really want to start writing a book, but after scrapping half of my characters or revising them, I'm back at square one for my main project. Maybe I'll have a BURST OF CREATIVITY (tm) and type out the entire manuscript in one go.

  6. I'm still holding out for Casting Goat Stones at Freaky Thingies.
