This is the worst part. Beginnings are easy, endings are easy. The devil, and drudgery, are in the details. I know what needs to happen, I've written the whole darn thing already. But cleaning it up, nothing seems to flow smoothly. Chapters 1-4 polished up really nicely. Chapters 5-8 are a hot, steaming pile. One character is bipolar about her love interest, and the love interest is bipolar about everything.

Writing is lying, and polishing the lie til it shines. To quote a truism about lying, "Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive." I'm hoping to turn this tangled web into a diamond. But after that tangled metaphor, I'm just hoping to make the darn thing make sense!
