Remember a while back when I mentioned the thing about building a house and burning it down? Anyway, I’ve reached that place in my tale, Grimoire. Some of my characters did not make it to chapter 49 –sadly. And I’m afraid something has happened to Vathek, my imp, well, Arlen’s imp really. Of course, I can’t tell you what it is because I don’t want to spoil the story. But suffice it to say unpleasant things happen to nearly everyone in this chapter. The next chapter – 49 – will sort it all out. And then the wrap up.
And I figured out why it’s taking me longer to write these last few chapters. It’s because I have lots of ends to tie up, messes to clean up. It was much easier unraveling everything, creating mysteries. It’s much harder to solve them.
