One day to go

And I think I might make it. At least I’ll be pretty close. All I have left now is the climax. The denoument and prologue are pretty much the same. I just need to do a little minor tweaking to mesh with the changes.

I still don’t know about the ending — how to make it good. And I mean nail-biting, hear-pounding, edge-of-your seat, almost pee-your-pants and then pass into a coma of absolute satisfaction good. I don’t want one of those, “Oh, the book was great, but the ending really didn’t do much,” kind of stories. I want the reader to jump onto their chair, hold the book above their heads and shout, “Yes! That’s what I’m talking about.” A little dance of happiness wouldn’t be unwelcome, either.

I’m hoping for prophetic dreams tonight. If not, I’ll just have to jump in tomorrow and see where I land.

The update for tonight is: 34 pages edited. 8,500 words.

I’m almost there. Glory hallelujah.

    Welcome back. I should have checked back here sooner. I asked Christine how you were doing..and she said you were working your buttocks off.It is good to see things are going well for you. I’m surprised though that you didn’t do an outline. I had an outline for the current novel I am working on, but it there were suddenly horrible twists that happened. Now I am stuck and have to redo the outline for the second third of the novel.
