Finishing my first book

The first “book” of The Asylum is coming to a close.

It’s been an interesting journey, and I’ve learned a whole lot along the way. This is the first book I’ve ever written all the way through to the finish, though of course the story is no where near over. But my partner and I both know this is the end of book one, we can just tell. There’s a big plot point looming on the horizon that’ll change everything, and open everything up for books upon books to come.

It’s kinda funny, we’ve know this was coming for weeks, but the closer we get to it in the writing, the longer its seeming to take to actually get there. Like an event horizon of a black hole. I don’t think the characters want us to write it. 😛 I can’t say I blame them, it’s going to be pretty intense.

Looking back on it all, it’s been an odd adventure.

I’m still kind of in shell shock about it all, but once I’ve decompressed a bit and had some time, I’ll share more complete thoughts on the matter, and maybe talk about the editing process a bit as well (once I’ve given myself the required “just walk away for a while” stage)
