Another very busy day.
#22, “Article Seventeen” out to Dean.
Wrote a story about a magician called “One Last Trick.” It’s #23 and 4,300 words. This one did some big, unexpected twists at the end that had me have to go back and revise half of the scenes. It went from one Point of View (POV) character to two. The story is better for it, but boy it made this a long day.
Heard from Dean about #13, “Life and a Starling.” Another one that needs to get out to market soon. A nice end to a long day.
