The first draft of Takeover is complete! I was having some trouble writing the final scene yesterday – I was at that point where two groups come back together after having separate adventures and I couldn’t figure out how they were going to share their intel with each other without having to recap the whole story.
Then it occurred to me that the last scene I was trying to force myself to write wasn’t necessary if I added a few key paragraphs at other points in the story. And, that the last line of the second to last scene was an awesome final line and left a good cliffhanger for the next story. (Which I have figured out!!! Go me! Knowing what I’m going to write before I sit down to write it!!)
I’m going to spend a week editing and rewriting in preparation for sending it to beta readers at the end of next week. I hope to publish it before September’s over, but I make no guarantees. Then I’m onto DoS stories #5 and #6!
To celebrate finishing yet another story that I was sure I was never going to finish, I’m going to see Def Leppard and Heart tonight. Very excited. The concert is outside and the weather has turned chilly, so I get to wear ripped up jeans and flannel. I feel like it’s always a good idea to dress like the band you’re going to see. Unless it’s Lady Gaga or Rhianna. I can’t pull off the leather hot pants look anymore.
Okay, so maybe I never could.
Rock on and have a buttrockfantastic rest of the week!
