And there is something wrong with it, but I can't put my finger on what.
It's dialogue-heavy, but... I think that's okay, really. Maybe it's because there's not a whole lot of there
there in between the dialogue. Blech.
I've also reformatted the Bear Story into a plain text doc for submission to this antho
, seeing as they take simsubs and the place it's at right now is "notoriously slow" (their words) and don't mind simsubs. I don't like doing simsubs myself, but that's a deadline and if the place it's at is going to hold onto it for six months (with no web presence, wtf, it really makes me wonder, yes it does), well. It's getting simsubbed, and devil take the hindmost, you know?
I've got four other stories I need to flip as well, but I may wait and do a batch of subs once I have a couple more NaNo stories banged into shape for subbing. I also want to write something for this
. I have an outline--another adventure for my spaceship crew--but I'll see if I want to do that or if I'd rather try to beat Ghost Ship into some semblance of shape.
I also need to poke the New Janni story some more (I have crit for it, at any rate), and Unquiet Neighbors is sitting there going read me read me read me
. The Hubby read that one and actually had no input as to any glaring flaws. Considering that it's the one that had me pulling my hair out at the end of the NaNo project, that's not bad.
Tell you what, it never, ever ends. I guess this is what being a "real writer" is all about.
