As I said in my last post, I wasn't sure how long this story would go....
I finished it! It was only supposed to be two or three chapters. It took on a life of its own. It ended up being TEN chapters. I was going to write an epilogue, but once the tenth chapter was written, I just didn't want an epilogue. It was going to go somewhere I didn't want. The tenth chapter worked so perfectly, I was nearly jumping up and down with joy. Remembered two parts from earlier chapters and worked them in to create really nice continuity. Just a wee bit past 10,000 words. Twenty days to complete. Neat!
It's going to be cooler tomorrow. Now that I've finished this 'birthday story,' I'm going to take out 'Blue' and start working on the next chapter. Hopefully, I'll be able to get at least one chapter done tomorrow. If the heat goes away. Just sitting most of the day drinking water and perspiring!
Working with friends on a trip for the end of the year. It will be quite exciting. It would be nice if I had a contract.... To help pay for the trip!
Life is hot.
