Until you give yourself to him

I have been listening to the Donnie Darko soundtrack through this last part of the book and hot damn it is heating things up. All of a sudden my main female lead cannot keep her hands off her un-dead boyfriend. Why should she, she’s going to face the unknown, literally going through Hell and hopefully back. What teenager can resist a good make out session complete with pelvic thrusts while fully clothed? I am trying to keep this PG.

Dialogue from my MC Darien: “If I had a heart it would beat for you.” Ahh. Is it wrong to be in love with your characters? Honestly. I am a big dork. I know this.

I’m 83, 600 words deep and I think it’s going to be just shy of 100,000 before I finish. Maybe more if I throw in that dream sequence scene. Oh man. Half of me wants to just finish, half of me wants to go on, and a third of me is really wondering where I’m going to come up with the money for editing? The things we do for our art.

  1. Even if it’s tempting to just finish I’d advise you to carry on until you think it reaches a natural end. Once you have the words down, you have the option to edit them back out later if you chnage your mind about them.
