(Excuse the Neo imitation.)

3900 words. Hopped over 55K; finished the last chapter before the climax.

Dammit, I want to write it now, but I have to sleep.

It's a wonderful feeling of exhilaration and momentum, like the moment when you leap out over the water (at some lake, by some cottage) and you haven't quite started to fall. And you know the crash into the water is going to be the sharpest shock and a pleasure all at once.

There's already been a little crashing on, but the big ones will come... tomorrow. :)

I think I'm going to be finished this thing on Friday. That's suddenly a scary thought.

And since I don't seem to be able to form paragraphs of more than two sentences, I will take my hint, and go to bed.

What I've done before (when I couldn't decide where to break up the chapters--with this novel it's been pretty simple, one scene to a chapt) is just write the whole thing without breaks, and go back afterwards and decide where the natural separations would be. You might try that if the starts and stops give you trouble. :)

Or leave them out altogether, as you said. The only reason I wouldn't with my own stories is that, as a reader, I like having a book divided into chapters.
