The finale seemed so much more exciting in the outline

I’m pretty sure it’s the result of the messiness of the last quarter of the book, but I’m not feeling the excitement I expected with this finale. It’s not quite done, but I’m normally much more jazzed when I’m at this point, and the fact that I’m not is disheartening.

There are bright spots, and I’m holding on to the messiness rationale, but it’s still disheartening.

Not enough to stop, though, and that’s the key.
