I just finished the third draft of my latest novel. I believe it is quite clean and ready for the eyes of family members and friends. While reading it this time, I realized that I had organized the book in strange way. I knew I gave it multiple climaxes. That was on purpose. What I didn’t realize was that each one was a different kind of climax. First comes to the action climax. Then comes the emotional climax. Lastly comes to the story’s climax. Each one has its own purpose.
I am very happy with the progress I have made on this novel–considering I’ve only really been working on it for three months or so. I can’t wait to have someone else read it. I’ll focus on something else tomorrow (probably the memory challenge). After than, I am taking a road trip to see and old friend halfway across Colorado (I’m thinking about taking the long way past Colorado Springs to see how bad the fire is). Until then!
I believe this is known as the Return of the King effect.
