The books have arrived. Bringing with them a certain sense of closure. After weeks of nervousness and bouncing off walls at 3A.M. I can finally take it easy. Though not for long. I have to finish The Fall of Undal soon. I'm so close, yet there's a sense of anxiety when I am writing.
See, I know the story and how it's going to end, who lives, who dies. I also 'know' how the technology is to be used during war. But, just like my oldest daughter doing her math homework, knowing how something is done is not the same as trying to explain it in a logical, coherent fashion. She always gets the answers right, but gets scored lower because she doesn't 'show how she did it'. So all the people are in place, the events are planned, I just need to be able to explain what/how/why so that others both understand and remain interested.
