I’m nearing the end of my current novel in progress. Based on my outline, the climax is up next, and I’m ready for this story to reach its conclusion. I have several short stories lined up and ready to write, and then contine with my other partially completed novel.
- With this novel being the longest written piece I’ve ever done, is it wrong to anticipate the ending of the story? Is this common?
- How long should I let the novel rest before attempting the second draft?
- At which point should I let me critique group read the manuscript?
The new year is shaping up to be very busy, writing wise. Let’s hope I maintain the motivation to meet my goals.
Bring it, 2014.
