Novel Progress

Sorry for my absence again. Health issues have taken their toll on me recently, and last Monday I had to undergo some lovely sinus surgery. Good news was I got a week off from work. Bad news was I spent most of that time either asleep, reading, or maybe playing Sims 3 if I could get myself up.

Now I can breathe freely, but am still recuperating from surgery, which means still having zero energy while also have started back to work this week. Fun stuff!

Here's a little update on how things are coming along on my novel.

Where I am in the writing process: I've pretty much got everything done except for editing the last three chapters, which are being like stubborn children who refuse to follow directions. I'm urging them to get in line and act properly, but they're running all over the place, pulling random plot holes off the walls and screaming really bad bits of dialogue like they've totally forgotten how to behave themselves.

My current problem(s): Aside the fact that my last three chapters have gone crazy, I've also got the not-so-uncommon issue of realizing that my story is never going to be as awesome on paper as it is in my head, and I'm just going to have to accept that and do the best I can.

The good news: I'm so close to being done, I can taste it and it's making me crazy.

What now? Even though I feel crappy, even though I'm annoyed that I can't get every chapter perfect, I've got to press on and finish this book so I can get on to the next!
