Am I Done Yet?

It's not over til it's over.

What I'm beginning to realize is that you're never finished. I would imagine even after a book has been published, an author wants to scream - give me back all 50,000 copies! I have one more change I want to make! Do you ever want to stop tweaking your creations?  I know I still try to tweak the most important of my creations, my children. Stand up straight, honey. Don't frown. He's not right for you. And on and on.

Same with these books. I can't stop and I can't let go. Maybe rewriting your book is a substitute for not being able to rewrite your own life. Are the people in novels our alter egos? Probably. Karen my soul mate and main character in three books is a lot of the things I want to be. For one, she's thin; another, she is fearless, another, she has a lot of hair.

Today I finish the final draft of The Energy Collector, again. Tomorrow is another thing.
