When you decide a WIP is done, is it really done? That’s probably a question geared more toward the writers who follow me, but feel free to answer either way.
You did it. You wrote a book. You didn’t just write a good book. You wrote a great book! You had it read by your friends, and they loved it. Your second draft was even better than the first. You had it edited, and the final version is perfection.
So what do you do next? You query literary agents, of course.
This is based off a friendly debate I’ve had on and off with a writing buddy. My stance, unpopular as it is, is that fantasy and sci-fi, as genres, are not only one in the same, but interchangeable. If you’ll enter into the realm of infinite possibilities with me, I’ll explain.

Today demands I write something new, something fresh to me. I’m not stalled on my current WIP (Kai the Swordsman), but something is telling me to take a step back, even if it’s a small one.
It’s not strong enough in either direction to be called “love/hate”. I see the merit to #NaNoWriMo, or “National Novel Writing Month”, but I also see it as a hindrance.
