The End is In Sight (I Think)

I wish I knew why the last few hundred words of a novel are always so hard to write. It happens every time, and it’s like pulling teeth to keep going. I’ve added about 7,000 words to A Perfect Slave, bringing it up to almost 58,000. It’s a much better book now, and I’m happy with how it’s shaped up, but those last few paragraphs… Tomorrow. It has to be tomorrow. Do or die.

  1. You’re so right, Catana. The first novel I ever wrote was a very long, out-of-control piece of goods. When I was in the early stages, I would get so excited when I thought about writing the last chapter. I couldn’t believe how it was when I finally got there. Three unpublished novels later, I now know all last chapters are hard – but it’s weird, isn’t it? Just plug on and do it.
