Yesterday marked the end of my July writing goal. A lesser mortal would take today, the cursed Monday, as a holiday, a break from all things written and difficult. Blasphemy! I say. Instead I've chosen to take a brief breather from the world I began creating this month for my Dragon Arrow novel and have instead scripted a bit of a short story that has been rattling around in my head for a week or so. I'm thinking that short stories will be a good way to get some recuperative work done in between larger projects. Also, they'll give me something to podcast in addition to Swansong.
