I am this close to finishing my WIP. This close.
Nine times out of ten, my novels are between ten thousand and twenty thousand words longer than I anticipated. This little gem is no different. I’m plodding towards the ending and flirting with the 90,000 word mark. That’s not horrible for a sci-fi/fantasy, but it’s one of my longer projects to date.
The problem is that I feel like I hit the climax ten thousand words ago, and I should be wrapping up, but technically the climax hasn’t even arrived yet. I may or may not have to chop out thirty thousand-ish words during rewriting.
And also, while I’m venting, I hate my MC. Both of them. They’re annoying the crap out of me, and I kind of want to… welll… dispose of them. I still might.
And on that cheery note, how’s writing going for y’all?
