Phew...

I've just typed 'THE END' on my lotrgficbigbang story! It still needs one final thorough editing (which I'll do on Tuesday), and marking up with html tags, but I already feel like a kid running out of school after her last exam!

Not that I didn't enjoy writing it -- I think I'm thoroughly back in the LOTR universe now. The plot is a continuation of an existing vignette, and it's a ghost story! And... writing the ending made me cry. So I'm very much hoping that, when it's posted at the beginning of August,

a) someone will read it, and
b) they'll find the ending as moving as I did (and not laugh their socks off instead, ahem).

Anyway, now that I'm 'free', I will soon get round to posting photos of Krakow, and then I'll start on my next bigbang story, which has to have a journey theme.

Congratulations on finishing the fic!

Pretty much you're guaranteed that if the the story moves you emotionally, it'll move other people too, even if some of them don't comment.

Thank you!

When I first tried to reply to this, I was in the 'Oh, no, it's complete crap' phase. Now I've edited it, and marked it up, and got it ready for my own website, I'm in the 'Well... It's not too bad' phase.

Good luck with writerconuk, btw. Since I'm not coming this year, I haven't been reading the posts (so as to keep regrets to a minimum), but I hope it goes well :-)
