My first Write-a-Thon story is done, with a bit over a day to spare. “Can You Tell Me How to Get…” ended up clocking in at 5,600 words, more than expected or intended.
I’m still not very good at writing shorter stories. I will see about getting either tale #2 or #3 to be under 4K (many venues like stories under four thousand words, including some notable semi-pro and a few pro markets).
It will need a lot of revision, but it’s done. This is actually the first short story I’ve finished since Clarion West, since I’ve been focusing on novels. Two more to go!
