A quarter of an hour ago I wrote "The End". I am completely overwhelmed, wonky, in tears. I have wanted to write a book since I was a little girl, and I have finally done it. It still needs months of rewriting and editing and getting other people to Beta read for me but I have done it. I don't know if I really ever believed I could, until a couple of weeks ago. Then I would think about how close I was to the end and feel so excited and proud and uplifted. Now I have actually done it I feel quite different. Overwhelmed is the right word.
