I did it guys.
Yesterday morning, around 10 o'clock.
I finished typing Blaze.
All of it.
Every last word.
And I am so thrilled.
I was still happy reading through the end the second time.
It's a great feeling.
Mom and Dad went off to get some stuff from town, the minions were goofing off and I was done with school, so I got busy typing and I finished it before dinner, and still got the house picked up for mom and dad coming home.
They never knew I was on the computer ;)
Then do you know what I did?
Right immediately after I typed THE END ?
I got on Pinterest.
It's a writerly thing to do.
Finish a story, you need a reward of some kind.
So I got on Pinterest and found this.
I'm sorry guys, but he looks so much like Blade it hurts.
So I pinned it to his board.
And got a thorough scolding from my roleplay buddy.
She told me it's the end. And I thought, but isn't the end where we begin?
She told me I had to finish the other stories I've got. That is was ridiculous to start anything more. That there was no way I could possibly add on enough to get to a point where I could make that picture a reality. That I should save it for a sequel, and if no one survived to make it to the sequel, I should consider a novella. But not now. Later.
I'm sure she knows what's best for me.
But you can't blame a girl for dreaming, right?
Anyway, after reading through the whole thing, I think I'm comfortable letting other human eyes see it. (If you don't have human eyes, I might be able to make a few exceptions) So if you were interested in reading Blaze, let me know where you want it sent to, and what format. I'm not able to convert it to Kindle format sadly, so it would have to be a word attachment, or just an email body. I'll also warn you. Half way through typing it, my spell check somehow got turned off and I have yet to figure out how to turn it back on, so there may be some words with the letters siwtched around.
