Okay, so I am still staring at “Longing.” I thought I would send it out last night but after a few more tweaks, I am still not happy with it.
Writers, especially new writers, will angst about a single passage, if it doesn’t quite feel right and I am no exception. I am still not quite happy with the middle and ending of this story. Strangely, even though I have not on purposely kept the word count down, it is still below the 1,000 word mark. I think it will stay there.
I think it is the tone of the piece that is bothering me. I know what I want, but not quite how it gets there.
I’ll try again later tonight. Maybe another walk will help straighten it all out… if I don’t melt first.
