FOUR days until submission! My ghostwriting marathon is nearly over. This morning, I dealt with all but the last ten pages of editorial notes on the MS. Fewer issues to deal with than in previous chapters, but a couple of storyline tweaks meant rewriting several sections. A few tricky moments, but nothing terminal.
The rest of the session involved smoothing out the rollercoaster reactions of one major character (who, during a run of action scenes, I’d blessed with every emotion under the sun) and reblocking some battle choreography to make the relative positions of certain characters more clear. Nips. Tucks. A growing sense of excitement that I’m heading down the back straight towards the final bend.
And coffee. Always coffee.
