I am so sorry I’ve done this to myself. And to you, those who have patiently stuck by me for YEARS as I struggle to write this story where basically nothing happens and people don’t just SAY what they need to say.
I’m sorry. I’m sorry for how this story is going to end, because I know I won’t do it justice. I really didn’t know what I was doing with this story, but I went ahead and did it anyway… and it reads like a story that doesn’t know what it is. At least to me.
Maybe a little down the road, after the dust has settled, I’ll be able to clean it up and set it right. Maybe.
Right now I just can’t stomach the idea of ever having to read it again.
I assure you it doesn’t feel aimless! Endings are always daunting. Stay true to your characters and their journey and you can’t go wrong.
I know you can do it . And as for your assumption that nothing ever happens in your epic story – well… there is EVERYTHING happening there. It’s the visceral reactions, the tormenting thoughts – all originating from a feeling we all crave and some of us never have or only have memories of. It’s called passionate love, overwhelming need for closeness to a specific person. That feeling that no one else will ever do and the journey to where these two individuals might finally be ready to be good for each other. Like no other, you have the ability to express all this with words so uniquely thrown together that readers not only get first hand experiences through the feelings portraited, but also the pleasure to come across sentences that are worth going over twice and three times, because they are so damn perfect. ❤ Keep going. Whatever the pace. Just don't stop. We're not going anywhere…
