It is, of course, completely misleading, that it is actually the end. The devil is in the detail and the devil is in the editing. We'll talk more about that later. But, it is still a wonderful moment. When you get to the end of your 70,000 plus words, you have still achieved more than most people will ever manage. I would even venture that you have moved from one of the many who say they would like to write a book to the much rarer, creature, the person who has written a book. So, allow yourself a cup of tea, cream cake or glass of whatever you like. Revel in the moment. There's one other thing...walk away from it now, for a while. Go for a walk, read a book, get the box set out. Whatever. The next stage begins soon. have a well-deserved rest.
