The End

I love writing 'The End' when I finish a manuscript. I'm not one of those obsessive authors who gets so attached to her characters she can't bear to leave them.
(This is Such a lie - I wrote Seven volumes in the Iskander series because I just couldn't bear to leave Ashley and Alexander!)
I think I've grown out of that now.

I've been playing this game a lot:

It takes a while to load, and the map is tiny, but it's a fun challenge. I haven't made it past stage 10. I'm learning a LOT of geography.

Thanks for the well wishes about my cold. It's still there! I'm still all stuffy. But it's just a cold (annoying, that's all). Tuesday night I'm heading to the hammam where I intend to steam it out of me.

"The End" is becoming a problem for me too. I wrote another childrens story and loved the char
acters so much that I wrote a followup story to it. Luckily both stories were accepted in the anthology I submitted to.

show that cold who is boss!

I love writing The End but I will confess to suffering a wee bit of "post natal" downness when it's done. Mind you, I've become sneaky, I plant hooks in most of my manuscripts that will enable me to create a series should the need arrive. But mostly I'm happy to leave my characters and go off and meet some more! ;-)

Actually I can hardly wait now to put THE END to Shadow of the Lion. Because I am now anxious to go back and finish my Celtic novel and...I am looking forward to the wrap party at a local Greek taverna when I finish Shadow.

I thought typing 'the end' just means that it's time to start the re-writing.

That's a fun geography game... except the map is so small, I probably couldn't even click on Seattle correctly.
