Numfar: Dance of Joy

FICTION SALE!

Never give up, never surrender.

The Cow Story has found a home. At pro rates, too. It should be appearing soon, once edits and such are out of the way.

More news as events warrant.

FLIST. DO THE DANCE OF JOY.

So much headdesking. I'm an idiot, apparently.

So, I was poking through my Cow Story tag and realized, huh, when I posted it for the Usual suspects, it was over 9,000 words long. According to my spreadsheet and the first page, it's 6700 words long.

How and when did I whack 3000 words out of it?

So I did the word count thing on the doc again.

It's actually 9700 words long.

Gee. I wonder if that's why it got rejected so many times. I really wish someone had dropped me a note saying "Hey, you realize this thing is 3000 words longer than you think it is?"

I feel like an idiot.
