Well, that's a first draft--a complete draft, even, and not just a Bad Draft--of this thing I'm calling "The Governess" until and unless I come up with a title I actually like. It's Victorian horror about class issues, mostly.

And my last solicited short for the year goes down in a hail of bullets.

Now to let it sit for a while and see if my friends have anything critical to say about it before I revise.
