At 57,000 words, the story is officially complete and in the hands of my betas. @_@

There's nothing quite like jumping in headfirst to something ridiculously long and complicated when you haven't written a word in years. One part of me is amazed that I stuck with it while another part keeps reminding me that "tenacious" is the polite way of saying "completely stubborn and pig-headed" and I really shouldn't be surprised. :3

I met my 500 word minimum every single day, squeaking by with 10 minutes to spare before midnight on one or two occasions. That's probably a huge part of why I was able to finish. Sheer stubborn determination not to fail my self-set challenge no matter how tempting.

I don't know what happens next. After my betas get back to me I'll read through the entire thing for the billionth time to see if anything still needs to be tweaked and then... I don't know. I'd like to submit it to LT3 but I'm finding it hard to ignore that little voice in my head that keeps insisting I'll never be good enough. I am and always have been my own worst enemy.

On the other hand, this is Rykaine's story and always has been. I can't imagine doing anything else with it. So... yeah. We'll see.
