I just barely eked out my word count today. 1002 words. I had to do a little scrambling, because I “finished” the short story needing about 100 more words, and didn’t feel like starting a new one for such a paltry count. So I fluffed a bit. Which I think it turned out fine. My first drafts tend to be a little spare, anyway.
I just have to remember to write in present tense for these characters. I’m so used to past tense that I keep slipping up.
Oh well. On to work.
