One Of Those Turning Points

It's one of those days. Best summed up in five little words: I submitted the novel today.*

Leaves me the rest of the week to work on the rewrite on "Sacrifices" and "Tigerfly" before diving into the outline for the novel sequel. The plotting seminar with Tim Powers this weekend at Context was instructive, and I definitely want to crank the twists and turns in the followup book as the story becomes more and more a "secret history." It always was my intention to take what I like about Powers and King, and tell my own kind of story. Now I get to see whether I succeeded.
