      You know, at this point, I have a question for you: Did it turn out the way you thought it would? How different is it from the idea that you started with?

      • Marie Brennan

        Hmmm. That’s an odd question. Due to the origins of this novel (the game I’ve mentioned before), I had a much clearer idea than I usually do how it was all going to end. Mind you, since 112K of words is a lot more story than 3 weekday-evening gaming sessions, the book is a lot more, and there ended up being stuff in the finale that I didn’t have in mind when I originally started. The frame of it, though, remained more or less what I expected it to be.

        But my usual mode more often involves thinking up the ending when I’m halfway through the book — or even further — so this is not normal for me.

    early done = early release?

    and all rounding Huzzah!

    you needs some ice cream, or the equivilent joy for you!!!

    • Marie Brennan

      hah. NO.

      Release dates depend on way more factors than just when I finish my manuscript: openings in the production schedule for copy-editing, typesetting, and priting; timing with other books on my publisher’s list and competing books on other publishers’ lists, and also with the season; etc. But the early finish means I’ll have plenty of time to revise it before sending it to my editor, which is a good thing all around.
