Cause for jubilation.
From me, anyway. I have finished editing and polishing The Pilgrims’ Tale. Woohoo! Now I can launch it into the wide world (or at least I can give it to my agent so that she can find a home for it) and start work on the edits of EPQ.
I’m having second thoughts on EPQ, to be honest. I wanted it to be lighthearted and fairytale in a similar mode to the lighthearted fairytale episodes of new Dr. Who, now Moffat’s in charge. But now I’m worried that it’s just far too silly. I’ll have to hope that when I open it for the first time in months, tomorrow, it turns out to have enough good in it to be worth salvaging.
That’s a worry for tomorrow, though. I have 30 minutes of today left to savour the fact that I’ve finished writing a new book. The whole nailbiting “will any publisher want it? Is it any good?” thing can have an evening off while I celebrate the mere fact that Pilgrims’ Tale exists at all.
