I had forgotten the exhilaration of completing a draft of a novel. I haven’t done it in over a year. Yeah, I was seriously celibate, which made the climax all the more thrilling. Not so much fireworks and pulsing lights, but that long, drawn out sigh of satisfaction. The one that makes you walk around with a secretive little smile, like you know something no one else does. The lingering, pleasant thrum you still feel the next day.
Only now, it’s the proverbial morning after. It’s off to betas, and reality’s about to hit. We’ll see if there’s potential for a long term relationship, but if not, the one night was…awesome.
