First and foremost (and I'm really sorry I don't know how to make much, much bigger letters on LJ): I HAVE FINISHED "SPARROWS"!!!
Yeah, baby, I have! Granted, I still have to type up the last part of Chapter 10 as well as the short epilogue, and then the beta still have to go through it with the fine-toothed comb, but IT'S DONE!!!
Erm. Yes, Sorry for the shouting. But finishing a long-ongoing story is an incredibly good feeling. I'd never have managed to get it done without picowrimo
, so a great part of the credit goes to the incredibly nice and supportive people there, as well as to the folks at little_details
, who helped out with a few, well, little details. *g*
Oh, ladies and the few guys on my flist, I feel like I'd won the World Cup. Or something like that. Now I can attack "Brothers-in-Arms" in peace. And I put the newly acquired Cadfael bunnies (all three of them) firmly back into the kennel. No new thing will be started before I've finished at least another ongoing WIP, and that's a fact!
*eyes plotbunnies warily*
In other news, I've pre-cooked three different dishes for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so that only the finishing touches will be needed, half-decorated the Christmas tree (only final touches, etc. tomorrow), arranged my 12 sorts of Christmas cookies on a huge tray (made photos, will post them tomorrow, or at least soon) and went to the audiology examination. Go me!
Oh, and I got a shiny from artemis10002000
! Postal service must be congratulated this year. All my parcels, the ones I sent and the ones I received, arrived before Christmas Eve. That alone is reason for celebration, right?
Oh, and have I mentioned that I finished "Sparrows"?
