I am some ten chapters from the end of my latest novel, Boy & Girl, and up to yesterday I still had no idea how it would end. Then suddenly in the evening everything fell into place and the end was clear and startling and brutal. Maybe it was because I could not leave the story on that note that I awoke in the middle of this night with all the words of an epilogue tumbling into my mind. I got up and wrote those one thousand words and then could go back to sleep content.
