If a story is in you, it has got to come out.
It's been a good day. I heard from one of my readers, and she was very complimentary about Office Relations. It is such a relief to have many of my thoughts about the story confirmed. She had some valuable suggestions for me, as well, so I plan to spend a bit of time revising, probably next week.
I'm feeling better about Hannah and Ben's story (must think of a working title for it soon). After wrestling with Ben a while over the weekend, I feel like I know him a lot better. To be honest, I'm not sure how long the story will be. It looks like it will be longer than I expected. It might be time to do some outlining.
I had an idea come to me for a trilogy of short stories. It's a very vague idea at this point, but I'm intrigued by it nevertheless. I've written some notes but probably won't start writing it until after the new year.
