Little pigs. Amigos. Wishes. [I swear this has a point.] See, I have three main characters in my novel Multiple Choice, and the chapters alternate among their stories and points of view.
As of tonight, I have three chapters left to write. One for each character.
I figured this deserved a blog post. I mean, way back in the fall of 2007 I wrote the first three chapters as a class assignment. Haphazardly, with a shoddy outline for what might possibly be the rest of the novel. Two years later, I'm on the last three. I couldn't be more excited and proud of what it's become, thanks in no small part to my FNC ladies. :: Hugs! ::
I'm aiming to be done by December, a sort of unofficial NaNoWriMo final hurrah. This sounds silly, but a tiny part of me is in awe that I just might be finishing a novel. I read so many blogs of ridiculously prolific agented writers [LiLa, Natalie, Steph, and many many more], and here I am going googly-eyed about writing one little book. (Alright, it'll be about 100,000 words and 18 chapters. Not so little.) But this is such a huge life goal that I'm so close to accomplishing, and I'm beyond giddy with possibility. I figured -- before the stress of revisions and query letters, why not enjoy the moment?
Here's to the home stretch!
