24164 / 20000 words. 121% done!

I've just submitted my [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang fic, and I'm wavering between squeeing and crying in a corner. I think the squeeing will win, though. Whilst I'm done writing it, there is still quite a bit of work to do cleaning it up, which I'll start after Azkatraz. For now, I'll concentrate with RL stuff, such as friends visiting *squee* and overdue betas and maybe even some queue.

And, omg, what a relief that I managed it just inside the deadline. *glomps [livejournal.com profile] kittylefish and [livejournal.com profile] stefdarlin for all the support*

Oh, I completely forgot that I'm free of musical constraints tonight! LOL! It's funny how ingrained Mozart has become lately. *switches to tango playlist*

It was an amazing journey. I think I've learned just about every single word that can even remotely be associated with music...

There was a time when I had serious doubts whether I'd be able to complete the rough draft by the deadline. But I beat it by one day in the end. :D

Thanks, luv! Exceeding the goal was actually the easiest part in the end, LOL. And here I was, wibbling over meeting the goal at all for nearly a month. Heh.

Supportive? I thought I was demanding! LOL! But for you, anytime. =o) Congratulations, dear!! Twirls you around and glomps you. It is sooooooo lovely, and I am a little sad it is finished, but still very happy for you.

You were demanding at the right time and very supportive! ::glomps you again::

You may have noticed that there is plenty open-ended stuff there. I may do an epilogue for the final version. Or maybe I'll just do a sequel. No idea yet.

Is your arm healing speedily?

You're so welcome. I'm sure you're feeling accomplished and relieved before you dive right back in for the polish.

Thanks for asking; it's healing, but not as quickly as I would like. Still, it's better. I actually drove today (the first time I could manage!)

More *reiki_vibes*

Driving is definitely an improvement!

I feel incredibly accomplished and equally relieved. Especially since I realised I've written close to 38k since March. I'm not happy with my lmhg exchange contribution, but by the time I started writing it, I was so utterly absorbed in the HBB one that I held a grudge. It's a lesson learned. :)

It really is a huge improvement, and I'm feeling less confined, although more tender tonight. Having said that, I'm amazed that ice is still a remarkable manager of pain and discomfort.

38K? That's excellent. I will be eager to see your HBB story, and in hindsight I'm incredibly relieved I didn't sign up for it. I couldn't have managed it with everything else.

Isn't the Lucius/Hermione exchange excellent? I've liked pretty much everything, and I've adored three so far. I'm already eager to see the reveal, and I might have to go back to review again, since the length of my comments have been mostly injury-hampered, but I've tried to leave feedback for every one.

Ice, wow. I shy away from anything cold when I'm hurting.

I loved the set-up of the HBB, and the nearly two months I have now to clean it up only added to the attraction.

I'm woefully behind on the exchange reading. Have managed to read about three or so, and sadly, I don't have time to catch up. Tomorrow will be a day of house-elfing, on Sunday friends are visiting till Wednesday.

The ice is really surprising, but it's very hot here and so there's sweating involved, and a little swelling in the arm, which makes the cast very uncomfortable. The ice, which seeps through the cast, cools off my arm, the swelling goes down and I feel much better. And I don't have to think about the horrid side effects things like ibuprofen and narcotics have.

How wonderful you'll have two months to revise and polish. That's an excellent timeline.

If you're behind on the reading, then you have several treats in store for yourself when you do have a moment or three. In the meantime, have a wonderful time with your friends.

How's Caramel progressing?

Yeah, the aftermath of deadline pressure is kind of dazy-eyed, isn't it?

Caramel ch 11 is written and with greenstuff, who's back from Peru. Do you want to see it and do your magic before it goes in the queue, or just wait till it's queued? I think it's pretty good-SS wakes up and the two of them interact. Finally.

Might take a brief hiatus from posting as I write ahead the next few chappies... don't much like posting as I write...

:D

Definitely dazy-eyed.

I think I'll just wait for it to turn up in the queue. Yay for interaction between the two! :D

I hear ya on writing ahead. It's easier to be able to post when you want rather than being pressured into writing the current chapter...

Congratulations! I'm sure that after the intensity of the writing process the last few days/weeks that it will be somewhat different getting back to real life. But, as you say, there's the editing process and Azkatraz. Then eventually, there will be the reviews and the enjoyment of your fans to help ease the transition.

It certainly is nice to make your deadline. Well done!

Thank you! Yes, the intensity of it was mind-blowing. I've written nearly 37k since March. I have friends visiting this w/end and then another two next Sunday, and then the following Thursday we'll be off to SF. In a way I'm glad I don't have time to just sit idly, LOL!

Right now I'm having trouble wrapping my head around your expression of "fans" O_o. I admit that the moment I post something, I turn into a review whore. But until it's posted, the process is kind of I need to write something therefore I write it. While writing, it rarely occurs to me that anyone outside my family or maybe a close circle of friends will read my stuff. *opens hands* I'll stop rambling now.

The writing process was very intense for this one. I'm sort of happy with it, although it needs quite a bit of cleaning-up. But I can chill for now; I have two months to perfect it. :D

Congratulations! I picked the 'crying in a corner' option, right after the 'bandage bloody fingertips.':) Squeeing sounds more fun, though!

Good luck with the editing! I haven't even thought about that yet, nor do I really plan to until my beta screams at me. :)
