No. I still have not seen that blasted Potter movie.
Looks like it won't happen until these edits are finished. However, I've noticed the phenomenal take that this final installment of Harry Potter has raked in the box office. Almost a billion so far. Wow! This is less of a rant than it is an open question to think about. Was it better to split the last book into two films? It made for a better adaption, but now I wonder. With the success of this Two Part ordeal, could this lead to the future of major book series ending the last adaptation with two parts? The tend has already started. The last of the Twilight books will be in two parts. Even The Hobbit is getting the duel treatment (which is odd, considering the book is shorter than any one of the three Lord of the Rings).
Can you imagine Mockingjay in two parts?
It's not a big deal. I'm just not a huge fan of waiting, but I will, if I absolutely must.
If this becomes the trend, it may change how books are marketed, meaning the final installment of your series may need that "Two Part" potential included. Thoughts?

Update: Editing--all I'm doing is cutting and making the read smoother. No blocking revamps. No loose ends. Uniform and entertaining. There are nine chapters left to read through, having cut about 11K words so far. The goal of getting this thing under 100K words is secured. I also caught a glimpse of the concept cover (generously rendered by an awesome in-law). Love it. I love it!
A few small tweaks and it'll be ready to showcase!
Until next time, keep those oysters contented.
