The lengthening of my “Oklahoma” manuscript from short story to true novella has moved into its final stage.
The original ending which had been 80% written but then entirely discarded due to time restraints (i.e. author screwing up deadline management royally), will now be reinstated and tweaked to match up with the newly birthed middle of the romantic saga.
Word count will not be the chief objective these last 3 weeks; climactic sharpness will. All old and new tidbits of storyline must meld into one cohesive, satisfying, heart-tickling ending… In other words, time to let loose the OCD beast!
May his perfectionist tendencies run wild, free and pretty in word and deed.
