A Short Story

Yesterday, May 6th, 2016, I wrote the first short story I have written to completion (of the first draft) in over 12 years. Took two and a half hours and was right at twenty five hundred words. Conception, creation, and completion are all included in that time period. I’ll probably need another four to six hours to rewrite it and clean it up but it isn’t too far off now.

It’s been a dream of mine for a long time to be a published writer but while I wrote a lot, I either didn’t complete the job or quit after the first draft. I hope I can break those habits and finish something now, if only to prove to myself that I can. The story I just finished is probably not going to be publishable because I wrote it and will rewrite it just to see if I could do it. The next one I start will be for real and I will publish it right here whether it goes anywhere else or not.
