The End is HERE

I've had more coffee while writing this book than I've had during the last few years of my life. My first novel was "easy" compared to this. The more I learn, the harder it gets. Somehow it seems like that should be the other way around, but it's not.

Anyway, what an amazing day. I spent all afternoon sweating my butt off at the fair with my family, came home and wrote the last chapter of my book.

Now don't get me wrong, there are many edits ahead of me, but the structure is there and it's good--I won't say brilliant because I just don't have that kind of confidence.

Thanks to everyone who has offered me encouragement, you have no idea how much I appreciate you all.

Tomorrow will be a tough day--first day of the red pen rampage. Better get to sleep now!


  1. Congrats Krystal! What a great feeling that must be! Good luck on the edits!

  2. Congratulations!! Hope the red pen is good to you!!

  3. What an accomplishment. I'm very proud of you, girlfriend!

  4. So pleased for you, your determination has paid off :) wish I had ur stamina 3 kids, blogging, book writing, family outings ur truly amazing.
    When I grow up I want to be u xx

  5. That's fantastic. Good work.

    I agree with you, though. The second book is so much more intimidating to write than the first!

  6. CONGRATULATIONS! I totally hear you - it DOES get harder the more you know. However, it also makes your wordage WAY better, so that's a great trade! Congrats on finishing that book - can't wait to get my critty little hands on that first chapter. ;c) * cackle *

  7. Thank you for all the comments guys! It's been a busy day today, but I'm just sitting down to start on my first round of edits.

    And Sarah--soon. It will come your way all too soon. ;-)

  8. A huge congrats on that, Krystal. Nothing like that feeling of knowing a book is DONE! Until you take out the red pen and realise it's not! LOL
