This being the final chapter, there's been a lot of death and destruction. In fact, I just murdered almost all of my human characters and stranded the few survivors thousands of light-years from home.
Fortunately, I have a plan.
In other news, I have been accepted to the Taos Toolbox Writers' Workshop! This two-week workshop (in Taos, New Mexico in June), taught by Walter Jon Williams and Kelly Link with special guest lecturer Stephen R. Donaldson, is a "graduate-level" workshop for writers who have already been to Clarion or Odyssey and/or have made some short fiction sales, and has an emphasis on the craft of the novel. It should be a lot of fun. (If you're interested, and have two weeks and $2800 to spare, applications are still being accepted.)
The only downside is that it conflicts with the Fourth Street Fantasy Convention. Oh well, there's always next year.
