The last few months have been a bit more chaotic than I’d have liked. That’s an excuse. *Sigh*. My writing schedule has been just about zero fulfilled. Not done. Kaput. On the other hand, I’ve finally plotted my way through a really complicated bit at the end. Ok, maybe not so complicated, but for some reason it was really giving me more trouble than it really should have. In my opinion. Which this is. ARghh. Why can’t I communicate today. This probably explains a bit of why I haven’t been writing all that much lately. I need to get back on track though. I know the plot, I know basically how the book ends. Now I just need to write it. And I will. I’ve even done a couple thousand words of it already. Yay.
I think I’m just having book climax doldrums. That’s a thing, right? Where you’re right there, right at the end, and you just can’t complete. Can’t culminate. Ok, you know what I mean. Right.
Trouble 1. I already know how it ends so I’m not as excited about it as I should be. Maybe I need to make it more exciting. I think it’s pretty exciting though. There’s semi trucks and attacks and a race against time and the big fight with the bad guy, etc, etc. I like it. So I should be excited. I think it’s more exciting to write about it than to think about writing it, so I should start doing that. Right?
Trouble 2. Lots of other things to do that seem a lot more exciting than finishing my book. They aren’t. But they seem like it right now. Like building a website for my dad (swordyzone.wordpress.com), or for me (mayloomis.com) or refinishing my old wooden lawn furniture. That came out really nice though, so maybe it was worth it. Or working out a probate. Or protesting my ridiculous property taxes increase. Or going to the farm. Of course, I ‘m here at the farm right now, and I’m typing, sitting out on the back porch, looking out at the beautiful fields with a wonderful breeze at my back. So maybe that one’s ok.
Trouble 3. Ok, I can’t really think of a ‘trouble 3’.
Trouble 3 used to be that I didn’t really know what was going to happen next. But that excuse has sailed. Time to get moving.
About a month ago I spent a few really awesome hours grilling my brother and his friends to figure out what the best way to block a bridge and spy on a house was. They came up with some super fun stuff, so trouble 3 is definitely toast.
Time to get writing.
