How to make it to the finish line

You have one thing to decide: How do you make it to the finish line?

Your novel can end with a bang or like a wet fart.

You can go out in a blaze of glory, writing madly.

Or you can shrug, forget about it, and move on to other things.

But one way or another, you’ll make it to the finish line.

A friend sent me an animated picture with a note that said, “I saw this and thought of you”.

In it a stick man is typing away quite happily, and then grits his teeth and gets more determined and types faster.

Then he gets in a rage and type even harder, until his fingers start to bleed.

Then he’s wailing as he pounds his fists on the keyboard until they become bloody stumps.

When he has no arms left, he bashes his head against the keyboard.

His eyes fall out, but he keeps on smashing his skull against the keyboard until he has no face left.

Then the bloodied pulp that is what remains of his head collapses on to the keyboard.

Needless to say, I worry about what my friends think about me when they send me stuff like that.

That’s one way of making it to the finish line, but it’s really up to you.
