I've not finished the book yet. Several reasons. I've been busy with the day job. I had family come visit. But the biggest reason was I had an attack of the fear. Fear that what I've spent the last six months on wasn't any good, that people will read it and think "what a load of crap" - basically negative thoughts of every kind.
I'm over it now and clocking in 1500 words a day. The end is close. dangerously close.
Naturally I've been having ideas of what to do next. I've been drawing characters, musing over situations and worlds. I know this too is a form of resistance, of procrastination, my fear trying to delay work on the main project but at least this is productive, inspiring almost. we'll have to wait and see.
I passed the 120,000 word mark today and still have lots to do. I think we'll be looking at 130/135,000 by the end of it. I've fallen a bit behind schedule as well due to life stuff but I've still sneaked in a few hundred words here and there when I can.
As I near finishing though, I'm having "I can't write" panics. My old agent is keen to read it but I'm resisting just sending it off to him before I've had a good chance to go through it.
Anyway, must finish it first!
