serious Oracle

Victory is mine

50k, my friends.

It's a big sprawling mess. A lot of it is crap. My characters have changed hugely over the course of the book, so much so that they bear little resemblance to those who began this journey. My villain's motive did a 180. My plot is wobbly at best. I have threads that seemed so very promising that are left, dangling and forlorn at around 23k, 40 k, and oh so many other places.

But it is done. And while it is partly crap, it is not entirely crap.

Now a moment of 'why the hell do I have to be married to a supremely talented writer?' Love him lots, but can I be as good as him at something, please?

And no, jousting doesn't count.
