Oh, finally!

I finished a story last night, just need to read it over and tweak it a bit, and submit it. It's a novelette, 8,000 words before tweaking, and a prequel to Wild Snowy Chase. Jrilii just doesn't want her tale to be short!  I'd call her greedy, except she really isn't, except when it comes to wanting her people's snow-unicorns to survive and thrive. 

Wild Snowy Chase, which is being serialized over at Torn World, is getting SO close to finished too. I loaded all the bits into one file, so I can read it over now that I know what happened before--it's over 30,000 words, well into the Novella category by SFWstandards, and already a YA novel-length. That kind of snuck up on me!

And to think when I first encountered Jrilii, I thought I was writing a quick short story, something interesting to show what it's like for the people who oversummer in the villages instead of traveling to the summer gathers.

If you want to see the gorgeous picture Ellen drew of Jrilii, or read what I originally thought was the beginning of Jrilii's story, you can find it over here: http://www.tornworld.net/fiction.php?id=17

If not, well, check out a yummy cheese.  Safe Deirdre food, and wonderful with organic grapes:

Just read Part One of "Wild Snowy Chase". Will be returning to read the rest after chores and baking are completed. I'm definitely enjoying it.

Haven't been able to return to your story yet . . . Reading the 1st part got me thinking about a story I'd been rolling through my head some time ago. After the baking and chores yesterday, I sat down and wrote the story. A very bare bones short (~1100 words) story. But a complete story, not just a couple of opening pages.

This is something I haven't been able to do for much too long. Thank you for the inspiration.

That's Wonderful!
That's even better than finishing my story right now. Heck, I still have to write the last chapter or two, so WSC can wait!

You're very welcome.
