The latest book I’m writing seems to want to come to an end already. I’m almost at the word count I want, but I felt it should be longer.
I’ve struggled with this idea for several months, all based upon a dream. An interesting dream, but I think this first draft needs a lot more love than the Outsider series did. Those books I had been thinking about for years, and they flowed easily. This one is much more complicated.
The final battle rages as I write this. At least I think it is. The characters may decide they have unfinished business elsewhere, I just don’t know. They might write themselves a happily ever after, or they may find they can’t go on. I can’t decide that, they’ve minds of their own.
As always I’m surprised by the personalities of people I’ve made up. They come unbidden, well, I’ve bid them come, but I don’t make them consciously. They just are born from the world I’ve written. I look forward to re-reading what I have, and seeing if it is as good as I recall. If it isn’t, I will just make it so. That’s the power of a writer. You can always change the world.
