I finished "Passport to Pleasantville" Tuesday; the first draft came in at over 7,600 words. I went back and did the first edit Thursday and Friday. Tightened up to 7,447 words. I sent it to a volunteer beta reader. Because of the subject matter, I really can't run it by the wife.
Got a start tonight on the next story, "Tell Gilgamesh I'm Sorry". Just a little over 2,00o words.
With my author event set for Jan. 22 at the local Hastings, I am the subject of a rather long article in Sunday's paper.
