The words today were long in coming… 1267, and 83,316 total.

Today I realized that if I had my ending, I could just stop here. 

I always end up adding significantly in revision. 

But I don’t have my ending yet. And when I say that, I mean that I don’t KNOW my ending yet.

I have the outline. 

But I went a different way with the story, so now the outline of the ending scenes is toast.

I’m finding my way. I like what I found today. I have no idea what I’ll find tomorrow.

I’m hoping the path of the story will flow a little faster then. Not smoother. Just faster.
