March Madness

My March Madness is made up of deadlines. No. One deadline. Which is coming up in 8 days.

I often hear authors speak about how it’s hard to write to the end, as if something in their subconscious holds them back. Because they know–as soon as they write the end–they have to leave that story. Sometimes it’s hard to leave a story! As a reader… and as an author.

Strike Force tells the story of my most broken characters to date. My hero swears like a soldier–and let me tell you–swearing is catharctic. I don’t care what people say about the use of swear words indicating a lack of imagination. I don’t care. This guy keeps swearing. And he loves the F-word. I’m working on curbing it as the story moves forward, but when your heroine is subject to the hands of the evil villain, it’s very hard to remain cool–don’t you agree?

The truth is, I will be very sad to write the end of this story. I’ve waited 3 years to write this story. It has worked it’s way through my veins and into my heart and it’s got [fucking] talons, I tell you. [excuse my french] As I get to the end, I just keep praying that I haven’t failed it.

And maybe that’s why I’m having a hard time finishing…

Will it be enough??
