That's all I managed last week, which isn't a bad word count. However, I wanted to finish my book.
But life happened, and then a couple books wanted to be read, and that daunting ending really gave me trouble.
Endings. Harumph. For awhile I was actually afraid of my ending and kind of repelled by my manuscript because it just felt like it was too big for me. I think I am over that for now, and I am pleased that I figured out a big piece of my ending (subject to change of course).
However, winding this book down is difficult. In fact where it is right now could propel my book into a new direction that lasts for tens of thousands of more words, but I won't let it.
My break was good and maybe I'll unplug occasionally, but it's good to be back and active in full blogging mode again.
So here is to finishing my book this week. Hey, not including about five- or six-thousand words I wrote previously, I can then say I wrote my book in 8 weeks.
