Okay, I said I was going to cut down talking about my Big Bang, and I will. This will, in fact, probably be my last post about it for awhile. Because...



It is 76,000 words. Thirteen chapters. DONE.

You know, I think I actually wrote the last 40,000 words in a week. Wow.

Now comes the hardest part -- waiting. I was in such a hurry to finish this thing that I didn't care that the rough draft isn't due until September and that my posting date won't be until October at the earliest, but now I'm sort of looking at the fic and thinking...I have to sit on this for four months? I'm an idiot.

But whenever I think that I didn't have to start it so early, much less finish it so early, I remember why I did -- I was afraid that if I didn't start it now, and finish it now, I never would.

But I don't have to worry about that anymore, BECAUSE IT'S DONE!

And, hah, it hasn't even been a month. I remember I told [livejournal.com profile] ladyblahblah when I was a week or so into it that I didn't think I could finish in May, but I could probably finish in June.

Hah. It's still May. The very last day of May, but still May.

It's too bad that May isn't NaNo month, or else I would totally have won. 76,000 words in three and a half weeks. Totally a new record for me, in many different ways.

Now what I'm going to do is close my document and not open it again for at least two weeks, probably closer to a month. I am not going to poke and prod at it. I am going to read some books and play some video games and just not think about it.

I do, at least, have plenty of time to deal with all the revisions it will need later. For now I'm just going to exult in OMG I FINISHED IT AND IT'S EPIC OMG.

76.000 words? wow. you rock!!! :-)

I'm doing Big Bang myself this year - I just reached 22.000 - I guess I have another 10.000 to go. I'm nowhere as fast writing as you are, but I also managed 15.000 of those words in 2 weeks or so.

I went that fast because I do not have the best track record with finishing long fics and I was afraid of stopping. :p It's pretty nice to know that I can do it, though. :)

Good luck with yours!
