At some time every book is the one you don't think you'll finish. But I really believe that Heart Search was harder than most. One reason is that I was dealing with some very heavy issues in 2010 (I was never so glad to see a year end in my life).

Another reason is that I gutted the first 14 chapters and rewrote them.

There are probably other reasons/excuses/rationalizations as to why it took me so long to finish, but I'm tired and giddy, so I don't recall them.

And, yes, for the first time in a long while I am giddy that I finished.

Now for the printing out of the rough and the massacre of revision.

May you enjoy your day today.

Most of the people I know are happy to see the back of 2010. I'm glad to see you've managed to come out the other side and are ready to enjoy the better luck of 2011!

Congratulations!!! Typing "the end" is so satisfying.
Happiness for me, too, since I've already finished Enchanted No More and am hungry for your next book!!
Hope 2011 is a wonderful year!

Gratz Robin,

Hope the edits are much easier for you! Maybe you'll be able to take a day off soon. Then get to work on that back log of projects you want to work on! ;)
