In a surprising turn of events I completed my latest Regency on the last day of summer. It was not my intention to do so - I had no clear deadline in mind - and I was rather shocked to discover how much I'd written in the course of summer. I was just writing. It was difficult at first. I resumed my work on it some time in March. The progress was slow. Then summer came and I had a lot more free time. I started writing more without realizing it and when my heroine arrived in London I understood that the end was nigh. I'm still in shock that I have actually done it - after so many years of carrying it around - and that my book stands at around 120K now. I know that revision will take its toll, but still - !
