I’m over 55,000 words now, and I’m trying to wrap things up. Unfortunately, it isn’t going as smoothly as I had hoped. I may hit 60,000 words yet. Of course, that would mean that I dragged the ending on for over 10,000 words, but I can fix it in edits, right?
My problem is that now that the serial killer is dead, I have to deal with the consequences of that act. Carter is in handcuffs, waiting for the DA to arrive and decide whether or not they should press charges. Meanwhile, Andy met Lisa’s parents and Cailin is trying to resolve her feelings for Carter and what he did for her.
I think the next step should be to bring the DA in and see what happens. If he decides he wants to arrest Carter, the group may show their powers after all and fly away, leaving everyone behind to find somewhere else to live and start their lives as super heroes.
Otherwise, if he lets Carter go, then the group would have to split up as the camp ends and everyone is sent back home. It won’t be hard for them to keep in touch, given Cailin’s speed and Lisa’s four-way telepathy link.
I’m not sure what’s going to happen yet, but I’ll let you know when I figure it out.
That’s it for today. Just this short update because I’ve got a busy day today and I need to spend my time on writing. See you again on Sunday!
