Conf 218: Closer & Closer

No. of words: 72,254

One more chapter to go. It's 3.30 and I haven't stopped for exercise, breakfast or lunch. Breaking off now as daughter back from school and we're off to see friend's cocker spaniel puppy.

So much for thinking about the end scenes and how to write them, I've been waking up in the mornings thinking about the beginning. New scenes to be added. And, for some reason, a man in a purple head-scarf, as if thinking of him like that will make him behave in a certain way.

A bit of a cheat really, saying it's The End, because there is plenty of re-editing to do on these final scenes. I do think the next draft will be more pleasurable and more to do with the actual writing and cutting yet more crap.

32 pages of 'outtakes' to look through as well. When I delete scenes or paragraphs, they're all cut and pasted into a document. It makes it easier to let things go that way.

What timing, some work work has just been delivered, 3 tapes, so that's tomorrow out, then Wednesday's the birthday day, tho I'll have school-time. It does feel good though, can almost feel the draughts of air of freedom waiting on the other side.

Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
