My manuscript has been revised, and at this time yesterday, I truly thought I'd be done by now. But while reading it aloud to myself for final polishing, I decided about three quarters into it that something is missing. I read to the end. A couple of hours later, I realized exactly what that something is. A couple of hours after that, I figured out what I need to do to fix it.

So, no, I'm not done like I wanted to be. There's more work to do. More sleep to lose.

I did just realize that the only person in the world who has read this version of the draft is me. It's been a very long time since that has been true (February 2008, I believe). I'm definitely looking forward to getting this out of here so my editor can read it and we can move on in the process. Still, it's kind of a cool feeling to be the only one. There have been lots of little changes, as well as some brand-new scenes added. For right now, they are mine! All mine!
