I have committed book

Draft the First of Witherwilds is complete, right on schedule, at 118K.

How do I feel?  Well, I don't know.  Accomplished, I guess, but I don't have that high that comes from completing a novel where the story is wrapped up. This is book one of a trilogy, and there is no great and resounding final action that ends the story. It sets up the events of book two. That leaves me with the feeling that all is still open and still to be resolved.

I will not, however, minimize my achievement. So:

HOORAY!

And I've made a decision.  Instead of setting the book aside for a mere two weeks, I'm going to let it rest for a month because, really, what's the rush? This means I'll have it ready for betas by Sept 1st.
