Okay, yes, I suck a little bit, I turned in my story today. But I was so absolutely raging and numb and out of my head yesterday after spending like three days straight taking it from 3,000 words to almost 10,000 (oicks) that I really needed to be able to look at it after some sleep. Hallelujah! I still like it. So it's in, and I'm going to shower, and leave my house, and eat something, and it's going to be a whole new world out there, I can tell.
Wow, when it goes well, writing is the best thing in the world.
