Thank you, NaNoWriMo. Today, I finally wrapped up Jefferson’s Road: God And Country. I have to admit, the ending didn’t quite go down the way I thought it would. I’m a little concerned that it might be too anticlimactic, at least in its present iteration. That being said, I’m done for the night, at least.

I’ll let it simmer a day or two and then take a look. Maybe I’ll spy some other way to conclude this particular chapter. I know so many of you are so invested and hooked onto the story, I don’t want to disappoint!

There are only two books left after this (yes, I know exactly how the series ends), and I’m reasonably confident I can get there in time. But for whatever reason, this book just feels… done.  I don’t know how else to describe it. The major conflict of the story is resolved, even though there are some loose ends that will carry over into the next book – and even form the heart of the plot line there.

At present, however, it’s the first book in the series not to end with a major hook. I haven’t decided if that’s good or bad. In the meantime, though, I’m going to bed. I have work in the morning, and then a lovely weekend home with the fam.

    • Soon. I slept on it last night, and realized there are two additional scenes I need to include to explain some things a little better, strengthen two particular characters’ reactions a bit more. Also, I’ve come up with a better hook for the ending that I’ll be putting in place. I’m gonna try to write these today, and then go through and be sure it’s properly edited (spell check, consistency, etc.) before putting it out there.

      So… Monday?

      • Can’t wait. Let me know when I can read it. Almost finished reading the Turning. Like it a lot. Keep up the great work. Patti
