The End

This is a day that I didn't think would happen.

The seas may have turned red and crows flown backward and other such prophecy stylee happenings.

Uh huh.

120,000 words plus 2.

That 'plus 2'?


If these insane ramblings are not quite clear - (is that a contradiction in terms? Surely all insane ramblings are incoherent, if they weren't they wouldn't be mad etc...)

Well, yes, I have finally finished my novel!! Yay! Woohooo.

Ticker tape!

Young soldiers kissing blushing young women in the streets!

Old men crying, saying 'I remember when this happened in 1905. I was a little boy. I never thought I'd live to see it happen again!"

Two headed cats are born!

Doves are released into the air!

Children are given the day off school!

Now the redraft. Sigh.
