I just finished up Chapter 20 and my characters surprised me again.  It’s interesting to put them in situations and places and see how the plot unfolds.  This time a character I had not expected to show up again until later in the book managed to get a cameo appearance.  I think it was worth it, though.  It allowed me to introduce a concept that I think will be better accepted later on if it’s used first here.  Otherwise it would seem a bit convenient.

All of my bad guys are converging at once here too.  I can’t wait to see what the next chapter will look like!  Perhaps I can finish writing the last chapters in July, do my final revamp in August, and submit it to my Writer’s group as a complete work in September so that I can start submitting it to publishers this year.  At least, that’s the hope.  Once my last semester of school starts up again writing will have to fall to the wayside in my priority list once more.  BUT, I will be done with my Masters in December.  No more interruptions 🙂 (at least not of the school variety)
