More of this, then.

Tonight, the internet took me into the exciting world of meningitis. Grim.

I cut all the notes away from the bottom of the story and whacked one scene, which cut my word count substantially. However, I fleshed out two scenes, which expanded the story well. It looks like I have three more scenes, all of which will require substantial revision. I hope to get around 4500-5000 out of the story.

Currently, I project having the second draft done by Thursday, a proof reading on Friday (careful by my standards!) and then I’ll send it out to some readers: Lindsay, C, Kizmet, and Erika. I will probably send it out before I get feedback, but I want the feedback, because I imagine the story will get submitted several times before it finds a home. Reading for enjoyment is also allowed.

At any rate, i think I will make for the anthology.

Blah, blah, blah.
