I’m on a roll now. I suddenly found my muse again, and have been writing a lot of Book 5 the past couple days. This book has been such a struggle for me so far. And when I complained about it to Michael, he pointed out the reason, and was dead on:
The climax is the hardest part of a story for me to write. It always has been. I struggle putting my protagonist in danger, and keeping the stakes high, etc. Michael pointed out that this last book I’m writing is the climax of the whole series. So it’s no wonder it’s the hardest book for me.
I know what needs to happen in this book, I’m just not sure how it should happen yet.
But that’s what makes writing an adventure in itself.
