Congress of Shadows is finished!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!

And whew....

Between illness, tiredness, stress, etc., this novel has taken sooooo much longer than I'd hoped. But tonight I wrote the whole climax and last chapter, finished it, and absolutely loved it. And I am so, so happy about it.

At the end of May, I'm going to take it out again, start circulating it around critiquers, and read it with a cold, clear eye to find all the stuff that's missing, confusing, redundant, contradictory, etc., etc., etc.

But for now...

It's finished!!!! I've spent over half my life wanting to write adult historical fantasy novels. I spent years and years, even as an adult, not even trying to write them because I thought it would be too hard (and therefore throwing all my writing energy into genres I didn't care about as much, out of fear of failure)...and now I've just finished my second one. It feels really good.

There is much happiness in this house. :)
