Short Story First Draft Finished!

13 Aug

*blows dust off the blog*
Time for writing has been much reduced of late so I haven’t been keeping this up to date. However, I’ve managed to finish the first draft of a short story (7,000 words – or will be when revised).
Set in an isolated glen in the West of Scotland, it’s a gentle romance with a hint of mystery. Oh, and a cow and a golden labrador. They crept in and gave me a surprise 😀
So, next stage is to revise using the relevant bits of Holly Lisle’s excellent course, ‘How to Revise Your Novel’.
I feel excited by this story, by it’s potential to be better than it currently is in first draft; and I love my characters and the setting. Lots of good stuff from my Sweet Spot Map!
