Approaching the finish line

Okay, my friends. There is a chance — a CHANCE — that I can finish the first draft of THE PYRITE WAR by the end of my spring break. I’ll be off from April 21-29. I do have things to do (set builds on both Saturdays, rehearsals at night, etc.) but looking at how much story is left… I think I can do it.

So I’m asking you guys to please, from now until the end of the month, NAG THE HELL OUT OF ME. Ask me if I wrote anything today. Ask me how MUCH I wrote. Ask me how much I have left. And the shame of potentially having to answer this question in the negative, God willing, just may be enough to push me across the finish line.

    You can do it…..how much is left???

      Hard to say. I know some writers who can tell you how many words, how many chapters, how many scenes a project will be before they even look at the first blank page. I’m not one of those guys. I do know how much story I’ve got left (about 20 percent) and I also know that I tend to speed up as a writer when I’m in the home stretch. That’s when the excitement kicks in and those horrible demons of distraction have less of an influence over me. I’m guessing between 10,000-15,000 words to finish this bad boy.
