Wait... you're not?!
Actually, neither am I.
My overriding feeling about Friday is annoyance. Why are you annoyed, strange woman, you ask?
Because about eighteen months ago, before I was fully aware of the Mayan prophecy/non prophecy (delete as applicable), I had the idea for an apocalyptic novel. I spent a year writing and re-writing, finishing just before the April A-Z Blogging Challenge when I set it aside to come back to in May. But I didn't get back to it.
I had some great readers for it - who all gave positive feedback - but I wasn't happy with the ending. I'm still not happy with the ending. I know it could be something amazing, if I was able to do it properly, but at the moment my skills are lacking - it's there, this perfect idea, but just out of reach. Argh... so annoying.
So I moved on to the next novel.
And then everyone started talking about the end of the world, which is even more annoying because a book that tied it with that would have been great.
Now, I'm expecting 2013 to be full of apocalyptic novels. I know it's not a new genre, and these trends go around in circles, but it would have been great to have been just slightly ahead of the trend.
Have you ever missed out? Have you ever struggled to find the perfect ending?
