As the dust settled on a weekend full of the laughter of children and the shifting of furniture, I decided that the best way to wind down would be to do some editing of one of my short stories for the collection.
So I’ve been working on one of the pieces I wrote as background to the novel – a combined history and travelogue style bit of fluff I wrote to firm up some of the mythology of the setting and embed it in my local area. My original piece was just shy of 500 words, and now it’s over 1500 in length – which isn’t bad for a quick descriptive piece.
I had intended to record some podcast material, but I think it’s a bit late at 1am to start on that now. Not the end of the world, I can do some tomorrow.
Always a great feeling to do some editing and end up polishing it real good. I almost always feel the inertia of getting started, but once I get into it, it’s pretty all right. Thanks for this post!
