See these people running? They are in the last mile of a marathon. For a long time I used to tell the kids, "Don't fall down before the finish line." It wasn't about running; it was about completing what ever you started.
Well, the book is due in 28 days, and this is no time to stumble. As I promised myself, I finished the new Chapter One before the New Year. Next - the Conclusion. It's funny how I have to finish with a new beginning and a new ending - kind of like bookends. A journalist friend of mine told me she recently interviewed a singer-songwriter who writes a lot of musical theater. He told her he writes the opening number of a show last, because it is only then that you know what the whole thing is about. Makes sense to me.
