Knocked out the first rough draft of my next story, "The Milky Way Dance Hall" tonight, just over 3,000 words between 7 and 9:30 p.m.
One positive thing about dictating the story is that my wife can listen and give me almost instantaneous feedback. Right off the bat she said the ending didn't work, and after a little brainstorming, I realized I went a paragraph too far. I need to end the story sooner for it to have that TZ vibe that seems to be my trademark.
Sometimes less IS more.
