I See the Finish Line

writing2When I’m almost finished with the first draft of a book, I start to get giddy.  Especially when I think to myself — this is a good story.  Even if some readers do not enjoy it, I’ve learned that if I enjoy it, it usually comes out okay. However, if I write something and struggle with the process, it doesn’t do as well. I suppose it has to do with inspiration, though I don’t often understand the muse that drives writers.

I have two more chapters to complete!  It’s currently at 35,000 words, so I’ll be close to my goal of 40,000.  Word count often fluctuates, too, when you begin editing.

Here is a list of the final chapters, which I hope continue to pique your interest.  Also, if you haven’t been following my Ladies of Disgrace blog, you’ll be missing out on all of my research from horse racing in the United Kingdom to makeup and hairstyles of the 1930’s.  You can find me at LADIES OF DISGRACE on WordPress.
