On day 7 I wrote the last chapter of the book–actually I wrote two last chapters because I haven’t decided if this will end happily or unhappily.
I also wrote a lot of single sentences from the beginning I have started that I hope are the major scenes leading to the end. From past experience I know I’ll be adding and deleting scenes, but at least I have something of a path since I’m not an outliner.
On day 8 I did 1)Yoga and 2)walked in the Santa Cruz Mountains, then I went to the farmers’ market for fresh veggies and came home to work in 3) my garden. In other words, I let my characters take a break from me and me from them.
On day 9 and 10 I dabbled with what I’d already written. Made changes. Wrote the chapter for 1ST ARREST, and left my poor MC in a mess.
