And So It Ends…

I finished the last Brenna Strachan novel tonight.  Dark Legacies is on its way to the editor, come morning… I’m not doing it tonight.

I’ve never finished a series.  This is a first for me.  I must admit, I’m kind of bummed about it.  It’s like my characters died or something.

Now, this does not mean I’m going to jump up and write another book with these characters.  They are done.  I like Brenna, but she’s too pessimistic, even for me.  She had a lot of growing to do and I think you can see her transition through the four books.

As for finishing the novel in general… Yea!  Woo-hoo!  Break out the champagne!  I find writing the last few chapters of a novel exhausting and when I’m actually finished, when the last word has been written, spell check has been run and the file has been saved, and backed up, I feel relief and exhilaration.  Finishing a novel is a great high for me.

For tonight, I’m done.  No more novels, writing or editing.  Tomorrow I’ll go back to the revisions on Dark Cotillion.  Tonight I’m going to watch mind-numbing TV, play video games and hope the aspercreme starts working soon.
