4 more days to go :)

Countdown to the last day of June Revision Hell. I have 4 more days until the end and I'm only on chapter three. However, I do expect it to go much smoother as I've revamped chapters one and two. But I do have an unruly ghost in my WIP! Let's just say he keeps things busy, lol.

The first pitch isn't until July 7th, so that'll give me 7 extra days (thankfully cause I'll need it!)

Other than that, it's been the same old stuff. Busy, busy, busy!!

How is everyone doing???

It's finally done!!!!

My bare bones first draft of Spirit Writer (will have to come up with a better title) is finally finished! I'm so proud of myself right now. I love my story and my characters.

Now comes the June Revision Hell in which I am participating in over at Savvy Authors. Time to tear it apart and fill it in more and make it SHINE. July will be when I get my chance to pitch it over at Savvy. So, I have roughly 25 days to finish. I think I may like this part the most.

Back to work. Just wanted to share this with everyone :) Have a great Sunday.

That last chapter

For me, writing that last chapter is the hardest of them all. I have to make sure all loose ends are tied up, and then, of course, there's the black moment and the HEA. Both have to be slam dunks. And I make it a bit worse on myself when I put the restraints on editing. As a matter of fact, during May Bootcamp, you couldn't go back and edit because the point was to complete a WIP in 30 days.

Back to the ending. That last pesky chapter and the characters are screaming at me to finish up already while I'm trying to ensure there's the big BANG! Yup, I'm frustrated with mine at the moment. I have the whole action climax set(my heroine is tied up and has passed out-the villain has turned on the gas. My hero is on his way to rescue her, of course, before the both of them are blown to smithereens) But, here's my problem. I need their black moment after this. Which I'm sure I'll get it sooner or later. I just prefer sooner!

How about you? Do you get frustrated with that last chapter or does it come fairly easy to you (Lucky you!)
