I think that's all the beast is getting out of me today. I have a fairly firm idea of what the end of the book looks like now, and even what passes for an outline around here.* Which means that I can look at it and tell you that there are about 20 plot points to go. Or, more or less, twenty scenes, though there are always little transitions scenes and so forth that crop up. The characters WILL demand to be moved about in time and space.

I suspect this thing isn't getting done by Readercon, however, and for some reason the urgency-tofinish is not kicking in the way it usually does, so I might ease off the deathmarch a little. I am within shouting distance of the end, after all, and I don't have to kill myself to get there.

Much as I would like to have a draft of this thing....

Maybe I'm mellowing in my old age?

* casacarona, arcaedia, if I get hit by a truck before I complete the draft, the notes are in purple ink in the Moleskine with the graph-paper pages, under today's date. You know who not to give it to finish, right? *g*
