Day 187 – Getting the groove back

Day one hundred-eighty seven of my 365 Day Writing Project.

Words for Days 186 and 187: 500

It has been tough to get into a groove writing the last chapter of my book. The fast-paced adventure is over. The characters are returning to where they came from. The story is…well, it’s still going, but it is definitely making me re-think my plans for the ending.

The good news is, I can sleep on it. And that is exactly what I plan to do. If I have learned anything about writing fiction, it’s that the story can change very quickly no matter what plans the writer may have. So I’ll leave it where it is tonight and come back to it tomorrow. Chances are, the groove will come back too.

    • I am having a hard time leaving my characters. But the hardest thing right now is HOW to leave them. I keep changing my mind. I think I’ll just have to write it, finish the ending and leave it so I can re-work the ending with one of the other scenarios later if I want to. Do you have any tips about how to handle writing the ending of one’s book?
