I've got my characters on the run.
Now I want to develop the relationships between them further. I need to incubate the romance, deepen the humanity of the Golem, and so on.
This is going to be challenging.
At the same time, I don't want to lose sight of the gangster background, so I'll need to get them involved as well.
I got off work early yesterday thanks to Cameron, and instead of losing all of Thursday, I had a chance to think about the ending of The Last Fedora: The Gangster Golem Chronicles.
I know what I want to accomplish thematically and emotionally. I have a vague notion of what I want the plot to do. Enough to move forward.
I dreamed about the book all night, so I know my subconscious is ready. (I dreamed a lot about two characters who were cute -- but aren't actually in the book. I tried to think of a way to get them in the book this morning, but couldn't.)
I'm going to do nothing but lock myself in my room for the next week and finish this book. I'm still in love with it, which is a good sign this far in. Also a good sign, I'm excited to do it, instead of feeling like I have to do it.
