1698 words done, and a short story first draft done! Seriously happy with this. It follows a lovely afternoon with family. I’m really happy with the way the story has gone, and I’m looking forward to diving into the edits this coming week.
This story is for an anthology that I’ve seen the call for. So I’ll get it in as good a shape as I can before getting it to my beta readers and then off to the editor.
I already have the next story underway, as I’ve mentioned in the last couple of posts. It’s a way off being finished, but I’ve got a good feel for it. This is for an anthology as well, I’ve got to check the submission window and see what time I have to play with.
These two stories are for an anthology series and I’ve got a feeling that this one, that isn’t even a thousand words yet, has it’s deadline before the one I finished today. So I’ve got to look it up in a minute.
I’m really enjoying having my own little space to write. It was nice just going in, popping the window open, getting some music going and just writing. It’s a nice space with a good feel and even though it’s not nearly done yet I can see little things that I want to do to it as I go.
Today has been good, a little emotional at times, but not bad emotionally. One part of my life is shite, and will be for a while I believe but I’m not letting anything defeat me. I’m fired up, and can see how (writing wise) the next eighteen months could go.
Tomorrow, I go again 😊
