So I haven’t worked on the Deacon Chalk book for this is now the third day. I hit a wall. Nothing big, I just hit a point where I knew what I had in mind to happen, but the words would not go.
No sweat, especially since right now ther is NO pressure at all.
Then this morning, on the way to the day job, I had a revelation.
I am nowhere near the end of the story.
Really.I thought I was two chapters from wrapping up the rough draft that I would then go back into and revise and edit. Then in the car, lightning struck, and I have another 20-30,000 words to wrap it up.
And this isn’t just fluff. This is stuff that should happen to make the ending I have in mind work. Plus it frames out and explains the Burgeoning Love Interest (BLI) and the offshoot character for the second series I have in mind set int he same universe.
So that is where I am at. It may really be December before I get this done. But we shall see, since I have a free monday to do nothing but work on the book.
I will keep you informed.
