When writing a novel, there comes a time when things become…inevitable.
Not in the boring sense. But eventually you’ve done all the work setting up those dominos in intricate patterns all over the floor, and the only thing left to do is knock them all down.
Also like dominos, this tend to happen fast. So fast that writing is like trying to stay ahead of an avalanche: move fast, step light, and for god’s sake don’t stop.
I have reached this point.
This is where the pace picks up. 1500 word days suddenly turn to 3000 word days. Or 5000. Or more. And all I want to do is keep writing until the inkwell runs dry.
So that’s what I’m going to do. As of now, the blog is on hiatus until this novel is finished. Time to stock up on coffee, crank the tunes, and hold on for dear life.
See you on the other side.

LIke riding a bike–the downhill is the most fun, and makes all the climbs worth the effort.
