So, I've been quietly coming to accept the fact that Tunnel O' Love has an ending.
I have always tried to leave the series open-ended. And technically, even after I finish the chapters I have planned, there's nothing saying I can't write more.
But I don't know that I will? What I have planned feels like the conclusion to a story arc. It feels complete.
I'm also thinking of going back through it and doing a little editing on the earlier parts. Nothing major, just fixing, rewording, and smoothing out some things that've ended up bugging me. I think I've become a better writer over the year I've been writing it, and I'd like to pull the earlier parts up closer to the level of the later ones.
I didn't plan for it to have an arc. I didn't plan for it to be a series at all. But it surprised me. It came to life. And part of me doesn't want it to be finished. But it wants to be. After all I've put into it and all I'm still putting into it, it wants to be complete.
So I will complete it.
