I just finished a short story! I think I began working on it a couple of weeks ago. It's been through a bunch of changes since then. For now, I'm calling it "Left Foot, Right," which is appropriate, since I got it done by doggedly putting one foot in front of the other. I've submitted it for consideration to the relevant anthology. Now I wait.
I'm having the usual story birth adrenaline high. Seeing as it's now 2 a.m., it may mean a sleepless night. Not complaining, though. I spent too many years too anaemic to summon this kind of creative drive. I'm thrilled beyond belief that it may be returning.
