Who’s Afraid of The End?

AfraidOfTheEndI AM.

I think that has to be the reason I haven’t finished the first draft of my latest novel. I have tried and tried to finish it over the last few weeks and I seem to find any excuse possible not to. Even this blog update is a form of procrastination.

Do you know what the worst part is? I know exactly how I want the end to work out, I have the basic outline so the writing can take me there but I can seem to bring myself to write it. I really like the novel itself, I think it has great potential……

Maybe I am afraid after all this work it will be horrible? Maybe I am afraid it won’t live up to my expectations? Maybe I am afraid that it won’t be worth editing? I don’t think I believe any of this but I seem to be sabotaging myself subconsciously….

Is anyone else afraid of the end?

What helps you break through the final wall?

Upon Completion

Endings

It has come to its unceremonious conclusion.

Happy to be done, 

Happy that it happened.

Learned more than I 

Thought or wanted.

 Saw things,

Heard things I wouldn’t 

Wish on anyone.

Lessons learned,

Knowledge gained.

In its temporary state,

Permanent improvement released.

Inching ever closer

to the

Ultimate Ending.
