My biggest challenge as a writer has always been finishing a story. Perhaps it is my love of the characters or wanting to continue to live in the world I have painted for them, I'm not sure. But it has always been my biggest challenge.
Becoming a published author was both exhilarating and absolutely terrifying at the same time because I knew, at some point, I was going to have to face the challenge of saying goodbye to my characters.
Last night, after months of sleepless nights and a ton of antacids while working on "The Queen" (which happens to be the last book in my Bed Wife Chronicles series), I typed the words every author must eventually utter.... The End.
And it felt amazing.
