The End. Just two little words but perhaps the most exhilarating a writer can write. Well I think so anyway. The blog this week is late because I had the very great pleasure of writing those words this week. The third book in my Shifting Magic series is FINALLY done. I spent most of every free day last week sitting glued to my laptop while the words just poured out of me. This book has been my nemesis. I thought this writing thing was supposed to get easier with time? Was it the story? The characters? Or just life getting in the way? I think it was probably a combination of things that made this the hardest thing I've written. Whatever the block was, for some reason it finally cleared on the 4th of January.

The End.

It's been a long time since I wrote those two words and it felt good. There were tears even. I know that there is still work to be done on this book. As the saying goes, this is where the hard work begins. It still feels damned good to write those two little words.

The End. Nice blog. Reaching the end of any story is an amazing accomplishment. I look forward to reading this installment of the Magic series. the first two were can't-put-down reads. Since this was the hardest to write, it's probably the best of the trilogy :)
BTW: I get to read it before the rest of ya'll.
NaNaNa!!!! I've got the rough draft in my inbox. Taking it to work with me tonight. Can't wait.

From a writer's point of view, those are the best two words of the story!

Congrats, Cait!

It was a wonderful story. (Tara, I read it before you did. NaNaNaNa.) I think it's the best of your Magic stories.

Typing The End is always emotional for me. I feel like I'm saying goodbye to good friends.
