For me, it's always about hope

I'm now 27K words into book #7 of Pete Drake's Omni Tale (about 180K words to go) and I'm so giddy with excitement I can hardly write. I try not to jump ahead when I write. While most writers I know compose 'scenes' and assemble them later, I write linearly. I don't get to move on until I wrap up wherever I am at the moment ... and yet.

I confess I couldn't wait to write, or rather rewrite, the final scene. I've known for years where it would take place and more or less what it would be about, except for the fact one of the players switched to someone else a couple years back.

In so doing, the theme of the entire series dawned on me, and I can't help but share it now. If for no other reason than to remind myself what I'm working toward.
