So I think I worked too much yesterday. I got up a little late, and made it to writing at 6:30 a.m., but couldn’t get anything going. I started several stories but I was either heading into already covered territory, or bored, or clear it would be a long story. So I gave it until 7 and switch to my day job.
At lunch I finally got an idea that drew me in and started another ghost story, “Death by Apathy.” Finished it in the evening and it’s 3,300 words. Read it to Aleia.
Took another pass on #23, “One Last Trick.” And out it goes to Dean.
Finally got the time to send #2, “Daisy’s Heart,” out to market.
