It's actually going to be finished. Yes. I think I finally believe that now. The scenes are flowing fast and furious, all the pieces of the story are clicking into place. It's an amazing feeling to see the arc of the story process from initial glimmerings of an idea, through development, re-development and finally to a finished whole.
My next project is an idea I've had to put away like a birthday present sitting on a shelf. I've promised myself not to open it until The Wings of Winter is complete.
