This Post is Filled with Confetti, Colored Ribbons, Loads of Balloons, and Lots and Lots of Noise Makers!!!

OMGoodness! I have the best news ever! (well, almost the best news, but close enough.)

THE REWRITE OF "SONG OF THE DAYSTAR" IS NOW FINISHED!!!!!!

That's right, I just finished it this afternoon at 82,064 words and 276 pages, double spaced. It's done at last, and finally I can start sending out queries! Now, I'm sure rejection letters wait in the near future, but I'm not allowing myself to think of that just yet. Right now it's time to celebrate, and I mean to do just that.

Break out the chocolate and ice cream! Where’s my favorite robe and slippers? Has anyone seen my Sherlock Holmes style bubble-pipe?

At the moment I feel a little lost. I mean, I have other projects I can work on, but Song of the Daystar has been my main priority for so long that now I'm not sure what to do. I think I'll take a couple days to just relax and reset my mind in another story. I’m still reading Starlighter, and enjoying it much better now. I have some homework, and a Dance Performance I can look forward to this weekend.

Ah, what the hey… I think I’ll start perfecting my query right now. I’ve been told over and over that a busy writer is never a depressed writer, and the last thing I need is post-story writers’ depression.

Oh, I’m so excited! This has got to be one of the best days of my life! *dances for joy*
