My short story for the Tales From Alternate Earths 3 anthology is done!
Begun (beta draft): Thursday March 4th at 9:10am
First line: Levski’s boots hit the ground, and he ran.
Finished: Wednesday March 17th around 5pm.
Last line: “Certainly not me,” said Levski.
Total time (alpha and beta drafts): 8 weeks
Word count: 13, 516 (more like a short novella…)
I’m going to let it rest at least until Tuesday next week, then polish it off (and cut a bunch of stuff) to get it ready for submission.
