I’m coming close to the end now.
It’s strange reading those words. It is hard to believe in just a month, I’m on the cusp of finishing the book. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to provide a post of substance here in several days. My time has been limited and I’ve focused my writing on the novel. I’m sure you understand.
I will say this: the experience has become completely immersive. The characters, places, and events have become exceptionally real. At the completion of each writing session, I feel an odd sense of displacement as I return to reality. It takes me a few minutes to get resituated. Jen must think I’m crazy at this point.
Almost there. Tomorrow is the big day.
