I’m at 14,000 words on this science-fiction story.  I don’t often say this about all of my stories but, well, I think it’ll be worth the wait.  I’ve also decided to make it more than a single shot.  That unfortunately puts me in the uncomfortable position of having… what?  3 multi chapter stories right now?  But, I’ve found that sometimes I don’t really have that much control of the stories.

Laugh all you want but I get the idea, set up the world and then it unfolds as I write.  And, sometimes I can tell when it needs to be more than one chapter.  Sometimes I can see where it would actually do well with a sequel.

This will definitely be done by tomorrow.  Probably by noon or so depending on editing.  I’m trying to turn over a new life for my stories.  I almost always rush the endings and now I’m trying not to do that.  So, tomorrow.  100% sure.  And it’ll be something like 16,000 to 17,000 words and (with as much humbleness as I can provide) well worth the entire read.
