My WIP crossed 91k this morning. I’ve just finished writing the climax and am starting on the whole aftermath wrap-up.
But. There’s a section in the middle–about 5500 words–that needs to go and be replaced. I actually left a chapter unfinished because it was so not working.
So, when I write “The End”…I know it isn’t really the end. Not just because there’s editing to do, there always is. But because there is actually an unfinished section in the book. The end of the book might be done, but the book won’t be done. Not even in a “Read my first draft” kind of a way.
So can I still say it’s done?
Also. I’m thinking of sending my query to Mr. Evil. Partly for fun, partly to see what kind of response it gets, and partly as payback for all the queries I’ve had so much fun with.
But I’d love to sub to the COM as well. So what do I do? Is it ethical to sub to both? Doesn’t that feel a little like overkill?
But then, I probably won’t get picked for the COM either.
I thought I had another ethical question to ask everyone, but I don’t remember now what it was.
The Black Dragon releases in a couple of days. I’m pretty excited. I’ll be chatting at Fallen Angel Reviews all day Saturday, on the Yahoo loop.
And I guess that’s it. I thought I had some interesting things to say. I guess I was wrong. Sigh. I’m so wrapped up in writing this last chapter or so, everything else is just gone from my wee head.
Tell me about something you consider unethical. Not in a stealing kind of way, but something you’ve seen that felt a little…wrong.
