I'm not doing it.
Having won it three times, with actual finished more than 50,000 word manuscripts. I have at least seven other novels lying around waiting to be edited, and probably 30 not unreasonably awful short stories, worth tidying u.First drafts are not the problem for me. I have them.
Second drafts, not so much.
This November, I commit myself to reading WWS all the way through, marking up along the way. I'd better get started, considering I've frittered away five days already.
Oh and apparently I say it wrong. This was the least thing I learned at Queensway Chapters, where Scott Westerfeld spoke and signed. Ed and the boy came with me, and thought he did a surprisingly good show. It really made the boy want to read "Afterworlds" to get the dirt on the other YA authors he's read. I'm halfway through, so he'll get it soon.
