the end is near

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.
