I’m up to the last three days of the plot in Awakening. OH MY GOD does it feel like forever (and no, it isn’t boring for the reader! Just frustrating for the writer ;p). This is the part that requires a delicate and forceful touch as it will lead onto book three, Feel the Burn. Yes it will be somewhat of a cliff hanger, but that’s how continuing stories work – otherwise it’d be a series, not a trilogy ;p
These last pages are really clear in my head, it’s just taking sooo long! Feels like when we used to go tramping with Dad as kids, Brad and I would ask (often… as kids do) ‘how long is it till we get there?’ And Dad’s invariable response would be, ‘Ten minutes.’
It never was ten minutes (I swear it!). Or if it was, wow that was the longest ten minutes ever. Period.
So that’s where I am now, in that final ‘ten minutes’ which feels as though it stretches on and on and on. The final hill climb before I can send it off to the first critiquer. Ahh the joys of writing *grin*
