Doctor Destroyo gets a finished draft

 So, it's today, it's right now.

I just finished editing, or I guess my second draft edit, of Doctor Destroyo. So you'll have to excuse me if I gush a little personally for a few moments, to kinda collect up my thoughts about the moment.

I kinda forgot that I'd decided to start the story on my girlfriend's birthday, which is a week from today, and the story ends one year from the day it starts, so the completing of the thing has hit a weird rhythm with the piece itself. I wasn't quite expecting that.

I know it'll still need a bit more work before I can really think about putting it in front of publishers, but at the same time, it's time to start letting edit-minded friend have a look at it.

I'm a little freaked out. I just started writing whole novels that I finished and kind of liked, in the past six months. And this is the most I've ever polished up something of my own. It's something that's significant to me, but you know, not really that meaningful to anybody else. And I'm cool with that. I'm just... taking some time to muse. Note the moment. Think about stuff. Like that.
