The novel I’m currently working on is at the 3/4 finished point of the opening draft. Not just is it close to being finished, but the final selection of chapters are always the most exciting and fun to write as it is when everything comes together and where all the developments and paths cross cross decisively based on all that has happened. You see the excited franticness of writing in the lives of the characters that everything so far has led up to. The narrative pay off and the more severe developments all make these chapters be what it has all been about. For both the characters, the reader and too the writer themself also.
