I spent all day (well, after yoga) working on The Queen and The Tower. I got to the end! But, it isn’t done. :-) I realized not only does it need an epilogue, but that there are several scenes that need to be written and sprinkled here and there throughout. Like a good seasoning.

I would love to get all that done tomorrow, so that I can devote Wednesday to all the OTHER things that need to get done before leaving town for three weeks, but…we’ll see.

Anyway, it was a good day to not go outside (well, after yoga). Cold and dark and rainy and bleh. December in Portland: what do you expect?

Well done!
I always finish books a chapter too soon. It seems to be a rule or something. Then I have to add a proper last chapter in the revisions.

I know! I do that too, it turns out. You get to the emotional "aha!" of the book and then stop. But there needs to be a little more.

Turns out this one was not an epilogue but just a longer treatment of the ending scene. At least that's what I think. We'll see what the editor thinks... :-)
