It looks like I only have eight more chapters left before I finally finish my novel. I'd like to be finished with them by Valentine's Day. I can think of no better gift to myself. It's do-able, but I will have to be more disciplined than usual. Luckily, I have a plan, and if I stick to it, I shouldn't hit any more walls or wide open vistas. These are the two roadblocks to writing that make me stumble the most. I write myself into a wall and think "What am I doing here and what was my purpose again?" I write myself into a vista and I think "Oh my God... What happens next? There are just too many options."
Finally, I have breeched the gap and have a road map to the final scene. I can't wait to get started on this ending!
