Finishing a book is hard!

I know exactly what I need to write, I know how the final scene has to play out and what each character will do and say. Yet, I’m writing at a snails pace.

Had a bit of a setback last week where I realised what I had written didn’t quite work. There was a scene involving a building being blown up, which wasn’t an issue until I was informed that the explosives weren’t positioned in such a way that the building would come down.

One tiny mistake ended up forcing me to cut and rewrite a large chunk of that chapter because now it didn’t make sense for the characters to end up where they did. Although I’m still not happy with what I wrote, it’ll do for now. I’ll attack it again in draft 2.

I’m so close to finishing, if I could get out more than a couple hundred words a day, I’d easily finish by the end of the week.

Ugh.
