Day 28

22 words and tons of revising.  Do you know what those 22 words mean?  They mean I am stalling.  I am putting chapters together, bundling up all my scenes and yet the inevitable writing of an ending that had better be pretty cool and all make sense is looming like JAWS outside my literary boat.

I have no idea what is going to happen.  J reminded me tonight that it has always worked out for me with the short stories, but ending a novel?  Ugh...

It's Carolyn's part.  The part that is blocked and that's the key.  I know it. 

How long can I put this off?  I still need to write 22,000 words and they aren't all the ending.  I had better get going.

  1. Is it the end of the world if you write that ending that's lurking in the shadows, you hate it and then you write it again, but completely different?
    You cannot fail in taking the next step.
    I agree with J. Your short stories always surprised you delightfully. GO FOR IT!!!
