Daphne’s no longer going to be forced into an arranged marriage with some pathetic demigod. Her sister Agatha isn’t going to be forced to divorce her husband and marry her father. All’s right with the world, eh? Well, there is that problem of a death sentence the Council passed on Daphne’s head. And guess who’s responsible for carrying out that sentence? And how close she’s sitting to Daphne? It’s the end of Daphne’s adventure, one way or another, in “Verdicts and decisions,” chapter 22 of To Ride the Lightning Bolt.
And for me, it’s the end of a ride that mostly began and ended in October when I wrote almost all of this story at a fever pitch. Ever since then, it’s been rereading and revising while watching my readers react to the story. A bit more relaxing than the times I’m composing only a chapter ahead, I tell you!
As usual, the story writing part of this blog will go on hiatus for a month to give me time to recharge my batteries. And now that some personal issues in my life have been resolved, I’ve time to think of where to take this blog next. In the meantime, there will still be occasional posts. I know at least one book review that should come up next week.
Thanks for visiting and reading!
