intense

relief

I have made this short story, and it is not a novelette! Hurrah. It's still kind of a long short story, but still: not a novelette. This is some comfort to me.

Also now I have this narrator's voice down on the page and therefore exorcised. And therefore he will not turn up again to plague me. Because that worked so well with Carter Hall, right? Just write the story down and the character's voice will be satisfied....

Sigh. Well, I don't yet know I'm wrong.

This is the first short story I've finished since Grandpa died. This is a good milestone.
