For those who might be wondering … I am down to the last 7 plot points in the grand climax. I’ll be busy with finagling the mechanics of that and scripting that out for the next week. It’s possible it may be done in the next 5 days, but I’m not counting on it.
After that major milestone is done, and after 3 years of work and over 650,000 words, I will then have only the denouement to do in order to complete the rough draft of the 4 volumes of the first installment of the serialized novel.
Subsequent to the rough draft, I will then turn to major rewrites on 2 chapters with which I am not satisfied. Both of those rewrites are full of complexities and may take several months to complete.
Finally, I will turn my attention toward polishes to produce what I can then consider to be a First Draft.
So … the blog will most likely be silent for the next 1 to 2 weeks while I finish the climax.
