The Difficult Third
So. I had the ending written. Perfect. And I have the first 2/3 of the book all figured out. So why is it so difficult for me to come up with the last 1/3 that would ultimately lead to that perfect ending? What's wrong with me? The 1/3 will have the penultimate conflict and climax but for the life of me, I have no idea what that would be -- at least not in line with the total story arc and themes. There's a big gap right now.
I guess I'm overthinking it, and thinking too far ahead. But I'm getting to a point when I need to know how to connect the dots. I'm really dreading this.
