Siege finished -- take two

Yeah, so, I know I said yesterday it was done, but then I woke up this morning with this nasty nagging feeling that it wasn't and while I was driving out to do a mail check for Dad, who's away, my brain exploded and I realized I had to tweak 3 scenes. So today I tweaked the 3 scenes and had a general quick double check of the back half of the ms and now, some 10 hours later, I can really say it's done. And while I wish my brain would kick me in the arse sooner, when it comes to bits that need fixing, at least it did kick me in time and not when I was holding the published book in my hand.


So I didn't actually have today off. I will take tomorrow and half of Wednesday but then I have to revv it up again for the next major rewrite.

If I'm a bit quiet -- the theme of this year, really -- then I'm hoping you'll all understand.

Oh gosh so much for the break =( I'm glad you were able to touch things up now instead of discovering it later but still...I hope you're able to enjoy your brief break and are able to rest up =/

Isn't it funny how the brain works? Driving seems to kick the creative side of the brain. I get some of my best, most creative thoughts in the car while I'm driving and have no way to record them. A mini tape recorder might work for the writing ideas, but what to do about the visual ones? It's hard to sketch in traffic or while tooling down the highway at 60+ mph... Good on you that you got it all fixed. For real this time. You hope.
