A Formal Feeling
At the end of a big project, a formal feeling comes . . . Seriously, it's a strange feeling when you finish something. I always vacillate between relief, excitement, and a low-grade despair -- what do you do next? When you're in the midst of work, all you can think about is what you can do when you finish. When you finish, all you can do is wonder what to do. All those ideas don't seem as good as when you can't get to them. Human nature, just like when you have no money and can find a bunch of items to buy and when you have money to burn, nothing appeals. Tomorrow I will rally and write again. But tonight, I wish my characters goodbye one last time with both joy and sadness.
