So yay, way to go!
Yes but, I've failed to finish, again. Clearly the stars are not right! As you can see, there are a lot of them.
What I have learnt this week, is never overestimate how close to the end of a story you may think you are, because the chances are you have further to go than you think.
For The Bureau, this problem is largely down to writing new words that required me to go back and put foreshadowing details earlier in the story. From this one can infer that I'm a just in time world builder, which came as a surprise to me.
I tend to think of myself as a person who thinks about setting. I read and research stuff, but in this case, The Bureau's gestation has been so long that I've moved on as a writer. So, one big problem is making sure that the bits I wrote earlier match those bits I've written later.
It's a tough life. Ha!
