Still Standing

And staring at my story. I added ~350 words to "Gone to FLowers" last night, bringing in a subplot and some symbolism. I think the additions work (and oddly enough, tie it more tightly to Hammered). And Celia challenged me to write a story based on external conflict, with healthy characters and without any themes of self-sacrifice, and no sex. Oh, sure, like *everything* I write has sex in it.

So I think I'll take this as an opportunity to try to fix "High Iron." Because I know what's wrong with it: the story ends just as the conflict is established. So now I have to figure out what the plot is that drives that conflict.


Well, maybe I can salvage something good out of it.

Writing is hard.
