Morning Pages Entry – April 09, 2014

Alright, fucking eh! But I did it again. Yesterday was another 5000+ words per day. Let’s see if I can continue this for the rest of the week. The only problem, may be, that I’m pretty close (I think) to finishing the rough draft of the novel, and I may not have enough words left to write for it. I suppose, I could write parts of the next novel if I do end up finishing this draft before the weeks up. I might even finish it today. Which, is really the point, of today’s journal. I need to come up with an ending for the novel. I seem to want to just keep on writing and writing endlessly. I should have had an ending nailed down before I started, and I will for sure next time. So, right now, I’m going to try and brainstorm my way through the ending. Then the only real thing I’ll have to do, is connect the new intro I wrote a little more seamlessly into the main section of the novel. Although, perhaps, I’ll do that during the editing process. Anyways, here’s were we are now with the novel. All of our heroes, Chaz, Alex, and Christa are in Fort Knox. Chaz, is the only one we’ve heard from since they’ve been inside. Alex is in a coma, and being somewhat cared for by the medical science staff, although no to the level that Chaz would like. The staff believe that Alex should be shipped to another facility. Christa has been taken to a secret research wing, where they won’t let Chaz see her. They do believe, that Christa is key to defeating the next mutation of zombies. Chaz has a bad feeling about the whole thing, and is hatching a plan to get them all out of the facility. He doesn’t realize though, that the general in charge of the place, is onto his plan and has a plan of his own, to pretty much throw Chaz to the wolves in an attempt to have Chaz killed. So, I’m thinking, here’s what we need to do next. Have the General approach Chaz and offer him a position within his guards to be responsible for keeping the freaks out of the fort, knowing full well, that it could be a suicide mission . . . or just maybe, that it gives the General a chance to keep an eye on Chaz (yea, that may be better). Chaz is more then happy to accept the position, as he believes, it may give him a chance to cause the disruption he needs in the facility, to get Christa and Alex free. Of course, he may have to bide his time, until Alex is well enough to travel. We’ll have to wake Alex up. Then, the two of them can work together, to get down to the lower level and free Christa. Christa should be good to travel, just totally in isolation. They will have to break down, into the second level, and break into Christa’s isolation room to get to her. While, they’re doing that, Chaz should have left some sort of plan in motion up above to create a distraction. Maybe a timed bomb to blow the doors, and allow the zombies in. He could perhaps, blow the loading door entrance, and plan to get out through the front doors, where no one will be expecting. As they’re escaping, they should run into an even more massive horde of freaks. They were drawn to her, because her mutation is now fully matured. Too many, even for Christa to ward off. The novel should finish, like the science team, had enough time with Christa to mature the mutation. They now have the cure and believe they can control the masses. Our three heroes are surround by the herd. Then run the final credits? Is that the ending? I think, that could do it. Here’s a possible list of scenes: 1. General talks to the Colonel about becoming part of his unit. 2. Alex comes to and seems fully recovered. 3. Chaz comes up with his plan to break them all out. 4. Alex & Chaz break into the lower section to pull out Christa. 5. Alex, Christa & Chaz make it outside the Fort and run into the herd. 6. The Colonel & Dr. Montgomery discuss having a cure for the next mutation.

And, I do finally think, that that could be the ending. I could really be finished.
