… is that during the last 1/4 to 1/5 of the book, I’m focusing mainly on tying up plot threads and loose ends. This takes all the fun out of writing, for me, which is why squeezing out the last 10K of this book holds about as much “fun” for me as the idea of running a marathon.

In the next draft, I’ll be adding in all the cool scenery and worldbuilding stuff and cleaning up all the dialogue, but for now it’s thread, thread, plotpoint, thread, and hunkering down and getting everything to make sense is just no fun at all!

I’m sure David Lynch feels the same way.

I should just throw in some red curtains, backward talking dream sequences, and have my heroine turn into a blue box at the end.

That’ll keep `em guessing.
