HALLELUJAH!

Ladies and gentlemen, please note the date and time. 12:44 PM PST, August 30, 2005. 35 hours and fifteen minutes before my deadline.

THE BOOK IS DONE.

I can hardly believe it. This process has been so incredibly different from the first with "Worlds Collide," and not, sadly, in a good way. I'm really hoping the trend doesn't follow this one. I'm sure part of it was the difference between writing for the heck of it in my spare time versus writing under a deadline. But if this is going to be my career--and I'm really praying it is--I'm going to have to find a way to make this whole writing-under-a-deadline thing work.

Anyway. It's done and that's all I care about. I'm off to celebrate. Adios!

Congratulations -- that must be an awesome feeling, though I'm sorry the process was difficult for you. I cannot WAIT to read the sucker! How has WC been doing? Oh drat, I just realized I promised to send you photocopies of our old "stories." They were supposed to inspire your writing, and now I've failed you. I'm sorry!!!
