“An unfinished story invites. It gives everyone the liberty to complete it as they like.” Henry’s words keep haunting me as I browse through his incomplete manuscript.

Unfinished structures welcome every new brick or stone. They reach completion but not in the manner as perceived in the beginning.

I call the publisher.

“If this book needs to be published, it will be in two distinct parts – the first authored by Henry, and the second as perceived by me. Ensure authenticity.”

“Don’t you think it will be a wonderful twist to take your part first, and then show readers the background?”

  1. I think every book published by a publisher is one 3rd the author, two thrids the publisher. They will only publish something written the way they want it regardless of the author.
    A great use of the prompt, Reena.
