The First Draft is FINISHED!

I've felt guilty for listing that I write fantasy here and on every other web site where my work is represented. I do write it.  I just haven't had any published yet.  But I did finish the first novel in my planned trilogy.  Or at least I finished the first draft.  I even started on the second book, but know I shouldn't continue with that until I go back and do a rewrite on the first book.

The problem?  I still haven't quite figured out how to explain how some things happen on my world.  Where do they get their power from?  They're a rather backward society in some respects, but they also have (stolen) technology.  I don't think I've adequately addressed that problem.

I'm really excited about this story, and have been planning my cover (which is going to be complicated and I can't do it myself and I don't think my current cover designer is up to the task, either).

Now ... all I need is the time and a couple of fresh ideas.  Anybody got any to spare?
