“And now, the end is near, and so I face, the final curtain…”
– Sinatra “My Way”
I’m referring to my latest manuscript, of course.
This project that I started for November’s Novel Writing Month has been a roller coaster of sorts – It is a book I began back in high school and have rewritten four times and re-edited another twenty times in between.
Having been so invested in this story and with a long and complicated history, there were times the two of us just didn’t get along. There were moments I contemplated re-writing the whole thing all over again.
But we worked out our differences. We came to compromises without sacrificing the heart of the story.
I’m thrilled and looking forward to typing “the end” – as much as I really don’t want the process to end.
Tell me about a book you read and/or wrote that you didn’t want to end.
