The Enemy woes...

I'm getting dangerously close to finishing the Enemy. This is a story that I started writing early in 2011, over four years ago. I've written it over two laptops, three iPhones, an iPad and countless scraps of paper, while in at least three different countries. I've invested a lot of time and love into it, and I really really don't want the ending to be bad.

I think I've got three more chapters to go, maybe four, depending on how it pans out. I know, vaguely, what I want to happen, but it's piecing what I have written over the past four years (and that is literally, I've just pasted an edited version of something I wrote back in 2011 into the chapter I'm working on now) together into a coherent whole, not missing out anything important and finishing well. It's difficult.

I had the same problem with Talented, which was a story of a similar length, though I wrote it in under a year. Ending it was really difficult. I'm happy with what I did though, and hopefully a few years down the line I'll be able to say the same about the Enemy.

Here's hoping...
