Congratulations!

Are we talking first-draft done or ready-to-submit done?

Third-draft done, happy-with-result done ... aka, ready-to-submit done.

Yes, it is. A very nice word. I've only used it once before on something so long. Nice to know I can do it more than once. Almost like riding a bike.

Thank you. Shower, shave and hot coffee are making a stand against Morpheus. :-)

Yaaaaay! Nothing like the feeling of "damn thing is DONE," eh?

Do you have an end-of-book ritual?

I breathe a sigh of relief, crawl into bed, kiss the wife and tell her I'm done and get a hug. Then I toss and turn and finally sleep, dreamless.

That works. :) Mine is to drink a toast of wine from my replica White Star Line wineglass. Everything I've so toasted at the end of the draft has sold thus far. *knocks on wood*

Nice ... I like the touch of the White Star wineglass. :-)

Perhaps I need to take the family out to dinner tonight and order a pint of Guinness, which would be my beverage of choice. Love the Guinness.

Thanks, Steve. Took me long enough. This is the final of the one I sent you back in April '06. So I'm glad to see the end.

Thanks.

We can trade off doing oneupmanship at World Fantasy. Which manuscript weighs more? Which one has a longer word count? Which one kills off the characters in the most engaging manner? ;-)

Well, if you're talking angst, I might give you a run for the money. It's a mashup of gothic and horror. There's an ick factor, but it's countered by the ahh variable. At least, that's my hope.
