I loved the response that last story got. Mainly because it was completely unexpected. I had nothing going into that and Neil was in charge the entire time. It’s a nice feeling to surrender entirely like that, take a chance on a short little piece with no real plot, and then get word that you had an impact on some people. Hooray for me!
On the other hand, my post-deadline breaks are becomming longer and longer by necessity and it’s harder and harder and harder to drag myself back to this project. I think this is at least fifty percent the mid-winter blahs. I”m pretty sure Spring will get put some jazz in my trumpet; it always does. For now, though, I’m begrudgingly coming back from my weekend to put another story together.
Seventeen. That boggles my mind.
