Done...

It's 3:31 am, and I'm finally done with Project X. Fifteen days after my initial deadline, but done nonetheless. I feel completely drained, but that's not unusual. Now I need to make sure this thing actually makes sense before I send it to my agent. But I am done, and for that, I'm grateful.

That's got to feel good. Congratulations. Have some chocolate!

Boy does it. The pressure of finishing the manuscript becomes even more overwhelming as you get closer to finishing. But as soon as it was done, I felt like going back through it and cleaning it up, which is what I'm doing right now. My agent is happy, so I'll get it to him soon, and now the clock starts on my publisher's option.

As for chocolate, these are the last days. I went to Vons tonight and bought some Dryers Cookie Dough ice cream. But after July 4, I have to cut it all out until schools starts at the end of September. I think I can lose a few lbs from now until the start of my tour. So I'm grubbing now, but after that, it's cold turkey. lol
