Mission: Finish 1st Draft of short short by last night (Friday January 10th, 2014)
Reward: Journey into city to watch the opera with wife.
I hope you all have enjoyed your week. It was a busy one for many of us, but we just keep doing what we do and that means plunging forward. The weekends, as always, rush by, and before we know it, we’re back in the work status. But as long as you can find something about where you are the you enjoy, even love, then I would say, dear friends, that you’re on the right track.
The story – I like where the first draft is going. It definitely requires some revisions, but it’s going to work. It’s my first dragon story, which, from any given angle, is excellent. Furthermore, it’s under 4K, which makes it, well, a nice range for a short.
I’m not sure who decided on what the popular word count would be among short stories, novelettes, novellas, and novels, but does it really matter? When we sit down to read something, we just want to do that, read. We know how many pages there are (at least with real books) because we can feel them, we can see them.
Second draft will be done by next Friday. Love you Cool Cats.
