The Wonder of “The End” (Important for Writers)

Writing by Hand

music: Authors On Tour Podcast

Are there any more satisfying words to type in the English language than “THE END”? I doubt it. (And yes I still type them in all caps because of my old short story days when that was What You Did.)

And I, Gentle Reader, have just typed them. Of course, in my case “the end” rather translates into “the middle.” I’m a big rewrite, over-write, and edit girl. I spend as much time editing as I do the initial writing, but that’s fine because editing is my favorite part. So this week I do a quick read trough, fill in all those bits and bobs I jumped over because I didn’t want to deal with them, or need to change because of surprise plot twists that happened as I was typing along. Then I print out the whole darn thing for the Red Pen Extravaganza to take place as I fly south of the equator. I can hardly contain myself, this is going to be such fun!
