The homestretch

I have finally conquered a difficult chapter. At one point, I even considered tossing it. But the boys finally co operated. Now, it's full steam ahead.

I love this part of writing--when you start the climb to the climax. All the pieces you've carefully laid in place are coming together, the tension is building, and you can see the finish. The writing happens faster because you know what's on the horizon and you can't wait to get there. This is what you hope happens with the reader, and if done right, it should.

See you at the finish line.

Very exciting! I hope to be at that point by the end of this month. *crosses fingers*

Hi Jenny,

You have to have a few difficult chapters that threaten to slow you down.

From the progress you're posting, you'll finish the month in good stead. If you want, we can keep checking on each other to see how we're progressing and cheer each other on.
