Another 425 words on Mikal this afternoon, just over 1700 in total, with still quite some distance to go before the thing wraps up. A couple of possible endings are making themselves apparent, although I’m in no hurry to get to them. It’s shaping up as one of my longer short stories, but it’s enjoyable to work in new ways and blow out the cobwebs. Getting away from the former-real-soon-now job is resulting in a rediscovered sense of excitement about writing.
