Near blind from the glow of the LED backlit screen of my MacBook Pro, dizzy from the constant fumes of paper pulp and ink, fingertips dull with the callouses of 85,000 plus words, I can finally see the finish line in this marathon of novel writing.
I thought that starting a book was the most difficult part of writing. Turns out - FINISHING it is.
All the loose ends need to tie in neatly together in a satisfying read. Easier pondered than achieved. But I am going to be a stickler about this. There is nothing I hate more than really getting into a book - really, really liking it - only to get to the end and wonder how the author could ruin the whole thing in the final few chapters.
I don't want to be that author. And yet, it is so tempting! There are only 4 chapters left to right. I want to make a mad dash for it. But I am pacing myself, methodically plotting the pieces together.
Now that I am so close to actually being a novelist... it is time for me to lay the groundwork for becoming a published novelist...
and then a New York Bestselling Novelist...
then a screenwriter for the movie version of Dream Walker...
then an Academy Award winner for, I don't know, something... because I really want to go to the Oscars before I die. And I really want to sit next to Tom Cruz and see if he is as weird as I think he is.
All that being the case, I am closing the curtain on Original Bliss in order to focus my attention on my writing endeavors.
I am moving my blogging to a website dedicated to my writing. You have been such AWESOME followers here, I am hoping you will follow me over to my new digs at ShannanSinclair.com. I promise that I will be blogging regularly over there now with amusing antedotes about my mind blowing, sci-fi, paranormal LIFE in hopes to tempt you to read my mind blowing, sci-fi, paranormal fiction.
