I almost forgot to post today, caught up in trying to get to my keyboard. I’ve got one last push, and then I’m done. Got the last chapter outlined and the dialog written before I called it good last night, and thought about it all last night. (Sleepless. I was sleepless.) So after I do the excercise thing, shower up, and grab a new cup of tea, I’ll be focused on breaking the dialog up, taking out the bits I don’t need, and then turning the last page. Whoo-hoo!
And then it sits for almost six months while I rewrite the last Madison book, rewrite book nine, and work on the rough draft of the world book, and maybe relax a little in the summer. But already, I’m thinking about who I can work out of the book to streamline it, where I can simplify the logic, and what I need to strengthen to make a more solid story flow. Oh, and the freebies. I gotta work up a freebie, and this is where it starts.
Massive amounts of caffeine. That’s what I need today. 😉
