Still finishing up my penultimate chapter (possibly I'm prolonging the process unconsciously because saying "penultimate" titillates me). I bid farewell to another major character, and now, I embark upon writing the climactic scene.
Depending on how one measures "climax," it might be appropriate to apply the word to the entire chapter. But if I have to narrow it down to a single scene, this would be it. I've had this plot point in mind since I started writing the novel four years ago. I won't say much, except that it involves freezing water, an abrupt (probably useless) change in perspective, and a young man at the end of his rope. I anticipate four to five pages in length, so I may be able to finish this weekend.
Wish me luck, or better yet, inspiration.
