Another week has rolled on by. How is everyone doing?
Don't you love the last two chapters of a book? It's like you've climbed a large hill pulling a very heavy sleigh, and then you've drug that sleigh across a plateau, dodging boulders and depressions and trees that spring up out of nowhere and now, finally, you are pushing off the downhill slope, and it's a clear and fast ride to the bottom. After weeks of huffing and puffing, you feel the wind in your face and exhilaration in your heart! Watch out below, I'm coming down!
I have one more chapter and an epilogue to go. I hope it all fits. I know there's that sinkhole back a few chapters, and I know there's some pretty shoddy, hastily written passages lurking, but I'm pretty sure I know my way now and the only trouble will be fitting it all into thirty pages. Probably will write forty and then cut ten out of the middle.
Thirty-four pages this week, how did you guys do?
