After my euphoria of finally finishing the writing of the main story arc, I've come upon the roadblock that it editing.  I thought I'd just reread part 1, delete a couple commas and what not, send it to a beta and then I'd finally be set to post.  Unfortunately, part 1 kind of sucks and needs much more extensive editing.  I've reread parts of part 3, which needs work but is so much better.  I think a lot of it is that it took me so long to really get a feel for where I was going and who the characters are.  I know that I was being too cutesy with the puppies -- especially Greg -- where later I give him a lot more backbone.  I can stand a little bit of that but not as much as I did, so it needs to be changed.  I'm also making some changes to the packs themselves, which necessitates some cosmetic changes to the story.  I'm trying to salvage some stuff but it's going to take a while.

On another note, I've almost finished the character profiles on [ profile] puppy_universe.  Then I need to finalize the timeline, definitions, pairing list and some other odds and ends and I'll finally open the place up for people to start reading.  I might throw the first chapter up even though it sucks.

So we'll see when this thing actually gets posted.  Sigh.

Puppy 'Verse is DONE!!!  I started it back in May (?) 2007 and finished it on Thursday while on vacation.  Yes, because I'm such a lazy ass it took me three years to write.  But!  It's the longest thing I've ever written:

Part 1: 352 pages; 204,500 words
Part 2: 480 pages; 281,600 words
Part 3: 682 pages; 411,800 words
TOTAL: 1514 pages; roughly 900,000 words!

I actually wrote the third part faster than the other two so I know I could've written faster but whatever -- It's done!  I'm going to take a breath, then I'm going to reread and edit part 1 and hopefully find a beta willing to look at.  Then FINALLY I'll start posting the sucker.
