My New Challenge

Okay, once again, I've made a last-minute substitution for the last chapter of the book. The other four stories were easy - I felt them, they had resonance, they wrote themselves. The last chapter has now changed three times, and each time it was because the story I was contemplating just wasn't something I felt deeply.

Then I had the idea for a final chapter that totally speaks to me, the way that the Orfeo chapter spoke to me. Here's my challenge: I need to write and edit the entirety of it before November, because I've still got my Nano to put down. If I can do that, this novel will be done, and it'll be ready to send off to the agents.

I'm starting that last chapter tonight. We'll see how long it takes.
