For the most part, I'm alright with messiness, textbooks and papers scattered over my desk, clothing stuffed into almost-closed drawers, and so forth and so forth. But sometimes, it just feels so good to be official. Like tying a ribbon into a bow on the top of a present (I'm sort of in the Christmas mood, so, yes, there will be a lot of Christmas metaphors) or perfectly frosting a cake even though you're about to cut it into pieces and eat it. You finish and feel good about finishing.
In light of that thought, to celebrate actually finishing* my work-in-progress that is no longer in progress, I made a book cover for my book. Just for the heck of it.
*Ye-es. I have actually completed my middle-grade novel, The Riddle Academy, twice before. BUT, with both of those completions, I immediately decided to start on a rewrite/new draft/completely different book except with most of the same characters and a similar plot line. So this is totally different.
