Getting ready for the last draft of War-Lord
I’ve been away from the study for a few months because things have been so action-packed in the office. Meanwhile Ellion and his problems haunt me. He whispers in my ear when I’m doing layouts and eBook designs on other people’s books. Not writing is becoming an ache, and before long there will be no choice about it.
This morning I was struck by the realization that a critical plot point may unfold in a very different way on this final draft. It would change little in terms of plot but have huge impact on meaning. And now that I’m aware of the possibility of this other course of action, I am tormented by not knowing what Ellion will actually do.
I won’t know until I get to that chapter on the final draft.
It’s not that I don’t know how the book will end. I’m just a little fuzzy on what will happen in the middle. This is going to make me crazy until I can get back to the study for a good extended run.
