And these are pictures that inspired the second last scene… Yes, second last... (grin)
I always feel flat after a book is sent. It’s a huge effort towards the end, like giving birth. So many final things to check and tweak. Is the ending uplifting enough? Does it all make sense? Are all the ends tied up? How can I make it better?
My darling husband always does a final read through for me and there are more little post it notes with things to check, smooth out, rearrange…
But there has to be a point when you say, “That’s it. It’s as good as it can be for now.”
What do we do then?
Well, we walked across the bridge to our favourite Italian restaurant. Tiramisu definitely helps the post book blues!!
Today I have a house to clean. Housework is out of bounds when I’m on deadline. And I have all that dessert to work off!!!
Tomorrow we head off for Hinchinbrook Island, so I’ll try to keep you posted. It will be my first attempt to blog from my laptop, away from home. Until today the roads north were cut after heavy rain on the weekend – the most rain ever to fall in September – but I think it will be fine for us to get through tomorrow.
See you soon!
