I’m taking a few minutes to pause and enjoy finishing the rough draft on another short story. “Rut” is topped out at 10,500 words right now. It has bears, otters and elks (the last are actual elk, not a new cool slag term you’d somehow missed. The first two… totally slang.). Of course, it also has a lot of drama.
It’s another anthology submission, so there is much polishing and refining to do before it’s ready to send off. But I’m going to take a few moments to enjoy the sense of accomplishment. Ahh, there it is.
