The end is near for sure. I have written a prologue, an epilogue, a letter to Larry that my writing coach asked me to write, and 18 chapters are in Parts 1 and 2 of my story, my book.
I am about to start Part 3 where I wrap it all up and bring it home. I have so many ideas running around in my head and I will probably have some late nights sitting here at my computer getting this all ready for final review and on to editing.
I was sitting here at my computer one day when words just started falling out of my brain and I am not sure where they came from, how I found them, but I did.
I knew when I re-read them they would be the perfect last 4 paragraphs for my book. All of Part 3 will add up to these last 4 paragraphs, only I did not know that until I looked at them and had a huge “Oprah moment”.
I knew then where the last part of this book would take myself and my readers and this discovery amazed me because it is the perfect way to tie it all together, and as I wrote above, it is the way I will bring it home.
My Last 4 Paragraphs
I was done, despite those who wanted to make me all undone for one night, or one week, and leave me in a crumpled mess on the floor.
My energy was gone, and spent by those who did not want to stay and just when I felt used up, washed up, the man I called a beast found me. He was captivated, mystified, and intrigued as if I were the finest wine he had ever brought to his lips and had at yet never tasted.
He got down on the floor with me. All the love he had longed for encircled him like a ring of fire, and eventually that ring of fire surrounded me and we could see forever in each other’s eyes.
Loving each other was better than anything or anyone who had come before. His forever ended leaving me to lie on the floor where the rings of fire had once burned extinguished by my tears. ~ Carole L. Sanek
