THE RAVEN BOYS was so entertaining on so many levels I could barely stand it. It was hard to read without shouting aloud at the end of every page. What would I be shouting? No idea. Gibberish probably. Or maybe fangirl squeals. My brain was so consumed by great characters and story it had no power left to form words.
So. Book five. The big finale. I’m not sure how I’m going to pull it off.
I have 4,558 words written. That’s 18 manuscript pages, almost to the end of the second chapter.
There’s a new character whose head I was afraid to get in. I was worried I’d never connect, that this person was too far away from me to be anything but forced. After writing my way into it, I’m shocked at how alive this character is. Looks like there’s a new star to this series, with a character arc that’s going to be extreme. I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to get through the day with yet another voice in my head.
Like all my books, I know the ending, and I have several bits of plot in the middle that move the story along, so it’s just a matter of writing up to each point until I reach the end. Easy, right?
I’ll post updates about once a month, and I promise to write as fast as I can.
