I just posted up the final chapter of Novel 1 in The Peacock King Trilogy. I finished writing the actual novel sometime in January, so my posts have mostly consisted of that backlog plus some edits as I go. Basically when I've been posting, I haven't been writing anything new. It's been *done* for two months. After I was finished writing I felt kind of weird, like there was no more work to do and this sort of confused me, and I expected to need a break but was surprised that that wasn't the case.
Now that I've actually POSTED the last chapter, I'm totally mopey about it. I had to force myself to finish the illustration for it today so that I COULD post it. I didn't expect to be this sad, especially since I've got a good chunk of Novel 2 already written! It's like my baby grew up, and now I get to go through the troublesome years of raising a teenager.
Has anybody else felt like this after finishing a story, or an I just a nut?
