Yesterday I finished the first draft of my short story, Piscis, which will be my next WotF entry. It's about 3k shorter than Edradorn's Hammer and I think more to the tastes of WotF (AKA I've actually been reading winning stories from the contest and have a better feel for what the judges like). Not saying that this is placing, but I'm slightly more confident.
I have some story elements I need to tweak, which will help with the problem that slapped me in the face when I wrote the ending. Man, short story endings are not my forte--my EH readers can attest to that. But hopefully draft two will fix the problem for this one.
If I submit this within the next two weeks, what quarter would I be entering in? I really have no idea. I'm not the sharpest crayon in the cookie jar.
ANYWAY, I'm super excited to work on this story, which is a good sign--I just have to find time to work on it! (I also happened to forget my lunch today, therefore I went out to purchase something, which sucked up lunch break time and therefore means no revising. Poop.*)
*Yes, I used what free time I had to blog. Judge away.
