Every author breathes for those words. The culmination of an artistic journey, the deep sense of satisfaction an achievement that comes from typing six characters on a screen.
Of course, the journey is far from over. I am twenty-six pages light, most of which live in Act Two B, but I now know where everything’s going. I understand my characters and their journeys, and I can see where that pesky act needs to be hammered – the addition of a determined “recovery” montage is always a good way to pull the character out of the despair of the ‘All is Lost’ moment.
