Writing Journal Y3 Day 144

If you ask me, and I know you didn’t but I’m gonna say it anyway, The End can be the hardest words to type.  I typed them just this week, capping a journey rewriting this book that began last year around May.  I’m talking about the Epic Fantasy.  175,000 words of fantasy goodness.  Yeah, that’s my opinion on it, but that’s all you get (for now).

Next is the hard part.  What do I do now?  I need to edit the last half of the book.  (I am so obsessive that I do a lot of editing as I’m writing.  Like, a lot.  Way more than is probably healthy.  Seriously.)  But at the same time, I’m at the point where I need to get away from this book for a minute or three.  But the agent wants it.  I have to edit it before the agent can see it.  But my brain wants to move on and write the next story.

That story will probably be the space opera.  I’ve wanted to give it some attention for quite some time now.  I have a polished three chapters and an outline for the rest.

Before I do that, though, I’ve been a little secretive about the title of the epic fantasy.  In the sidebar, it’s been just ‘epic fantasy’ rather than the actual title.  I don’t know why I do that, but I do.  Anyway, I’m gonna tell you the title now (and change it in the sidebar):

I’ll say more about this book as time goes on, but for now – you get the title and what little I’ve shared here and there on the ol’ blog.

    Congrats on finishing, Patrick! I feel you on needing space, as well as the rewrite. You make me feel better for taking eight months so far, though I’m almost done. Intriguing title, too!
