A while back I posted Echelon’s sentence and blurb. That’s the last time I’m doing that without a disclaimer because one of the comments in the crit I got back really caused me to think through some aspects of the plot.
And I realized I didn’t need those aspects.
The core of the story remains. The characters, their motivations, their goals, even their obstacles have not changed. In fact, I think taking those aspects out will only make the story stronger. I hope, anyway.
In the future, though, I’m going to be adding a disclaimer to my blurbs that everything about it may change. Otherwise, I’ll feel bad for setting expectations that shouldn’t really be set until its ready to publish.
Just so you know.
