The first of the last two installments of my novella The Whitehawk Legion goes up this weekend, starting with Chapter 10 today. Chapter 11 will be posted tomorrow, leaving only Chapters 12, 13, and 14 for the weekend of December 4.
And they aren’t written yet. Not a word.
Which means I have two weeks from today to write three whole chapters (though one will really be more of an epilogue), aiming for about 2,500 words each.
This is what is known as “the home stretch”. And it’s going to be tough. I’ve managed to make it on deadline every installment so far, but most of the time I was pretty much ahead of the curve in terms of where I was actually writing. I haven’t really faced crunch time before. Now I am.
So, ironically, despite the end being almost in sight…it also seems farther away than ever.
