Almost there! Funny how emotional it is to get to the end of the book. I’m picking up on themes that I didn’t quite know existed the firsts time through. Sione’s comments are reverberating in a major way as well. I’m working toward a slightly different ending that I was before. It’s a minor shift and something that I will address in subtle ways during the next revision.
Writing takes an emotional toll. It is difficult to describe in my case, because my bipolar is difficult to describe. I wrap so much into the stories I write, probably more than I should. Everything intertwines in my life, a mess of overgrown vines wrapped around a house that was once imposing. I try.
Daron and Aubrey are coming to the end of their journey. I am coming to the end of mine, at least for this cycle. I think a few more days, and it will be done.
