Chapter 12 is here: http://www.rollingrocksdownhill.com/2006/01/chapter_12_cros.html
This is the end of Act I! In terms of our hero’s journey, we’ve setup a fairly impossible but important crisis, we’ve found a mentor, we’ve considered other options, we’ve found the direction of the solution. Now all Steve, the hero, has to do is not waste the crisis.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I’d ever get this far, but I’m quite pleased with how this is coming together! Only 18 months (less time off for baby) and I’ve got the hardest 12 chapters done. That is 28,500 words if you care …
Save yourself a little time and read the full chapter in pdf. It is much easier for me (and, I imagine, you) now that I’ve found the delightful and free pdf995 converter. I’ve stopped publishing the whole chapter in html because it’s so painful to do the conversion of pictures etc and there’s something dodgy with how blogjet or typepad or someone else handles words clever quotes.
I’d love to hear your comments
Oh, and if you’ve published before, I’d be interested in any advice or recommendations you can give me wrt finding an agent and getting the book published.
