No, the battle I've been having is with Destiny Kills--or, as I'm starting to call it, the story that never ends. That's what it feels like at the moment--it's just going on and on and on. Don't get me wrong--I love this story--but right now, I hate it, too. This is the third major rewrite its undergone, and I have absolutely no idea what I've written into the story and what I haven't. It's all just one big muddle in my mind. I'm sure the end result will be worth it, but for the moment I can't see the forest for the trees. Or the plot through the mess.
Of course, it doesn't help that Destiny is due ASAP, and Riley 6 has to be handed in by September. I'm currently working on both the books each day--doing 5 pages on Riley, and 20 on Destiny--and switching between the two different voices and styles gets a little confusing. But if I can keep up that pace until I leave for the RWAmerica conference, that'll mean the Destiny edits will be finished--and ready to be printed out and corrected--and Riley 6 would have hit the three-quarters of the way mark.
Keep your fingers crossed for me! I need all the help I can get at the moment :)
