Separation anxiety

I have two chapters left to write in FMS, my first stand alone book. I've heard writers talk about a sadness they feel when coming to the end of a story. Last night as I looked at the notes for the last two chapters, I understood what they meant.

Not to sound weird, but it's like you prepare yourself to say good-bye to people you care about. I suppose that's a good sign. I hope readers feel the same way when they finish the book.

Well done, speed queen! Don't worry, you'll soon be so busy you won't have time to be sad any more! But I understand that feeling. :)

Speed queen. I don't know about that. We'll see how the second draft goes.
