The End is Near

For my latest novel anyway. 

I’ve just about reached 70,000 words and feel the story building to the climax. I know the end scene and I’m just about to the point where it makes sense to write it. 

It’s a medical thriller about a woman blinded in a car accident, that has her eyesight restored electronically. Because of the way it was done, she now has a direct connection from her brain to her computer, and ultimately the Internet. Yes indeed, that’s when the fun begins. 

Unlike my other novels I don’t have the 25 words or less description for what the book is about yet. I typically can’t do those until I have the second draft. I have to let the high concepts of the story sink in for a while I guess, or maybe it’s the defining scene of the book come out. I think that it’s very probable that I haven’t written that one yet, and until I do, I won’t be able to describe the book. 

What’s funny is that I do have a working title. The book is currently called Blind Power. I typically don’t have a title until the book is finished, but for some reason this one just came to me. 

Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have the first draft complete, and will start the process of revision. 

Keep writing
