Busy work day so harder to get the hours in today. Early, lunch, and late.
Did another “Death by” story in the world of Shuffled Off. This one is “Death by Cookie” and is about 4,000 words. Fun to bring JJ and Banquo out to play with.
A quick pass on “Death by Vodka” and off it goes, extending the streak to 12 days. The streak is feeling pretty tenuous, but one more day.
Heard back from Dean on “Home in Time,” Story # 5. He liked it.
