I thought of this a few days ago and I figured I'd give a try.

I have written a cryptic clue, then taken said clue and written a cryptic clue about that cryptic clue.

["Ignored projectile", pronounced this disregarded batty host (9, 4)] (5)

The enumeration inside the brackets ([ ]) is for the words that are currently seen. The enumeration outside is for the answer of the outer (inner?) cryptic.

My question is simple, what's the final answer?


PS: Please give feedback on the structure of my Cryptic Clues as I'm still learning on how to build them properly

Inner cryptic:

DISMISSED SHOT   (Ignored projectile [def.]; pronounced this [DIS, hom.] +
               disregarded [MISSED] + batty host [SHOT*])

Outer cryptic:

Dismissed shot. (5)
FIRED   (Dismissed [def.]; shot [ddef.])

These both looked pretty good to me, nicely done. :)
