Finished the first draft of the short story I wanted to finish this month. It’s not quite right but it’s closer than most of what I’ve been turning out lately. I haven’t actually read it yet, but alpha reader feedback is 3 for 3: “creeeeepy.” Which is certainly part of what it’s supposed to do, so I’m pleased. In the morning Kit will read it again and give more detailed feedback, I’ll read it and give it the first revision, then post it to my writer’s group for a whirlwind critique session before final edits and sending it off. Yay for writing to deadline, especially given unexpected writing-delaying events such as out-of-country travels.

To hear more about that, start with “Off to Mexico” and read up from there to find out about most of my last week’s adventures.

    Its definitely a creepy and weird story, and very evocative of what I know of the original legends. I’m looking forward to giving you detailed feedback.
