Some writers won't talk about their works-in-progress.
I am not one of them.
It doesn't bother me a bit.
So - here's how my current work-in-progress is going:
Slow, slow, slow and painful.
I have a title:
On the Road to Mr. Mineo's
I have characters I really like: Stella and Gerald
I have a pretty good setting: the roof of a garage in Kramer, South Carolina.
But, um, story?
I'm groping in the dark.
And yesterday a bad thing happened.
I've always considered myself pretty good at chapter endings.
They are uber important.
Today, I couldn't figure out how to end a chapter.
I have never ever done this before (i.e., moved on to the next chapter without a killer ending for the previous one)
