I'm done!!!! Done, done, done!!!!!! I'd be doing a happy dance if I had the energy and if my office wasn't such a mess that there's no floor space for dancing.
About fifteen minutes ago, I got through the revisions on book 4. I'll still want to re-read the last few chapters, because I changed a lot, but the worst of it is over. There's this incredible weight lifted off my shoulders. I've had books hanging over my head for about a year now, and while finishing this one (more or less -- it's not turned in yet) means I'm sort of unemployed, it also means there's nothing major I'm supposed to be working on for a little while.
I'd had all these grand plans about taking the month off and getting stuff done, like cleaning my house, relaxing, reading, getting a life, but I just looked at my calendar, and I have a week and a half before things get wacky again without letting up until mid-November, and there's a lot of stuff I have to get done before then. Ack! I guess I'll try to mostly take November and December off. There are a few things I'll need to work on, but they're a couple weeks worth of work spread over a month and a half, so that's okay. And I will try to give myself some down time in the next week and a half before things get totally nuts.
For now, though, I'm making a pizza (the dough is rising), and I'm going to spend several brainless hours in front of the television. Battlestar Galactica is back tonight! Wheee!
Can you tell I was inhaling Dr Pepper all afternoon? Wheee!
Ahem. Now I have to go make my pizza sauce.
