I cannot wait to hear more about post-apocalyptic americana! I sort of feel like I'm watching something at the start of its rise. Steampunk wasn't really anything until a couple of big authors grabbed hold of it and named it something cool (although, steampunk, you know - not really that cool). I feel like post-apocalyptic americana (she says, using italics, because she is pretending to - I don't know, justify the fact that she is pasting the phrase and can't be bothered to use the caps lock key?) could be one of those. One or two good books and a sudden surge in the genre and it ends up being one of those things that everyone is like, "WEE!" about.

Also, I joined [community profile] endings. You know, maybe that's where I've gone wrong in the past. When I think about my novels, I rarely think up the endings and the last lines in advance, even when I have an outline in my mind. I think that even with an outline... I need there to be some sense of surprise somewhere? On the other hand, I really, really love the idea of having the first line and the last line be the same. I've seen it done a few times but never well so... Hmm. Dammit.
