WE INTERRUPT OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED BROADCAST

To sing the Hallelujah Chorus.

The draft is DONE. Finished. Finito. The END.

THANK GOD!

(And no, I'm not being sacriligious. I am well and truly thanking my creator that the blasted thing is FINISHED.)

You see the trick is, THIS was originally the story that started the series. I have written it, completely, a minimum of five times. (I've lost count, but I have five different versions on disk and on this computer. There may, however, be more). Every time it was JUST ABOUT ready something happened. Then the world changed, and our writing improved, until the first drafts looked really pathetic.

BUT IT IS NOW DRAFTED, TO CATHY, AND FROM THERE IT WILL GO TO ANNA.

I would do the happy dance, but I'm too damned exhausted.

I hope to take 2 or 3 days to rest and catch up on all of the STUFF that accumulated while I was in the mad rush of writing. Then on to a short story and to finish the first draft of another book.

Wish me luck.

Busy, busy, busy Yolanda, my Dad is in the hospital (heart problems), but hopefully all will be o.k. in a few more weeks. My Sister got married two weekends ago and two Friends of mine got married last weekend.

Oh Jim, sorry to hear about your dad. I sure hope he gets better... sending a virtual 'get well' to him!
