Stick a fork in me.  
I'm done.

I wrote 10K of those words in the last three days, while on a family weekend at the coast.

Yes, my family is still talking to me, but it's a near thing.

The synopsis and query were written in less than an hour.  The query, in five minutes.  It is definitely not a great query, but I had no idea if "August 10th" as a deadline meant midnight their time, or my time.  I sent in everything in at 9:05pm my time, which is technically five minutes past midnight for them.  Fingers crossed like hell that they take it.

I would hate for my eyes to be bleeding (or feeling like they are) only to fail.

Never let it be said that I cannot meet a deadline. 

I am officially going to go and collapse now.

SUPER THANKS goes to my awesome team of beta readers: whiskeypants , woodrunner , dthon , and kistha , who heroically read this thing in pieces, whenever I managed to find a Wi-Fi connection this past weekend.  You guys are fantastic, and anything still wrong with the text will embarrass me, since I'm sure you all caught it on your read throughs. 

Here's hoping Samhain reads the text, despite my five-minute query and half hour synopsis. *winces*

Yay for finishing! That's a hell of a lot of work to do in a short period of time.

I'll keep my fingers crossed!
