The two most fun words to type are

THE END
I know this for a fact, because I wrote them last night, as I finished the first draft of Children No More. I cannot yet tell if this novel is utter shite, pure brilliance, or just another pile of words due to serve as brain candy (which is not, by the way, a bad thing), but I do know these two additional things for certain:
1. The first draft is done.
2. I have a ton of work to do to make this novel as good as I can manage.
That work, though, is far easier and far, far quicker than the first draft.

I turn to the second draft today.

I am looking forward to reading it this summer. I am sure it will be the a great read. And, there is nothing wrong with brain candy. Sometimes it is exactly what you need. Congratulations!

Thanks, though I'm hoping for both a great read and more than brain candy.
