I love it when this happens:
So, I started writing a short story for submission to a sci-fi magazine. It’s just over 7000 words and has been massaged thanks to the wonderful assistance of my husband and my sister Debbie. A not-very-keen-on-sci-fi friend also read it and loves it – except, it’s just not a short story. No matter how much I want to print it off and send it into the ether for a magazine, it’s definitely working into a Chapter 1.
I’m really liking this story, but I’m not going to do a reveal until I have it really done. Bwah. Ha. Ha.
