Goal Accomplished:My First Short Story

I did it. On October 18, 2012, I declared I would attempt to finish a short story within 30 days. The first draft was sent off to be critiqued yesterday. I was really excited.

Then I woke up in the middle of the night realizing I needed to change something. I’m okay with it. It is a first draft, and I’m glad I caught the faulty plot element before I tried to send it to my editor. So, three cheers for editing and revision. And as Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory says, “Thank you brain.”

I didn’t post a Zen Sunday post today. With Frankenstorm Sandy, day job deadlines, edits, writing deadlines and other random foolishness, there really wasn’t anything Zen about the week. Maybe next time.

 

About Stormie Kent

Stormie Kent is the author of romance with science-fiction, paranormal and contemporary elements. The universe she has envisioned for her erotic sci-fi romances are filled with warrior men and the women who fiercely love them. Space pirates abound with dueling goals of stealing your credits and your life or stealing villain credits and freeing the slaves of the United Universe. Stormie has imagined a world where the hostile alien invasion of the third planet from the Sun forces each surviving resident of a fractured Earth to seize their destiny or perish. Enslaved in Desire and Battling Rapture are available now.
