crisis averted

So, I wrote Wisdom. And what you may or may not know is that I was not pleased with the ending. Not pleased at all. It didn’t feel… right. I still can’t say what exactly was wrong with it except it seemed too… sterile. I don’t know if that’s the right word, but that’s the one I’m using. 
The good news is: Inspiration hit, and I rewrote the ending tonight! The last 6,500 words were cut, trimmed, or rerranged, and the word count went up to almost 10k. But you know what? That’s okay. Because the ending is perfect.
Really. Well, I think it’s perfect. 
I feel so relieved. I really hated the old ending and couldn’t figure out how to fix it. 
Anyway, I fixed it. I’m excited. I can’t wait for you all to read it. 
(Which will be on August 22nd, when the highly anticipated fourth novel in the My Blood Approves series is released. Meanwhile, feel free to catch up on the rest of the My Blood Approves on now, as well as the first book in the new Trylle Trilogy.)
But right now, I’m off to watch Top Chef and do laundry. Yes, that is how glamorous my life is. 😉
