The first draft of my utopic/dystopic story is done! It needs a lot of work but I’m shelving it until this weekend at least so I can look at it with a fresh eye. Overall I’m not that happy with it but to be honest I’m very, very rarely satisfied with my work when I finish the first draft. I always love the initial idea and then as I write I start to hate it, because I can never get it exactly the way it was in my head, then after I polish it up (at least 3 more drafts) I’ll start to like it again, not as much as I liked the original idea but still.
It ended up clocking in at about 7,000 words.
Next story I’m planning to start work on tomorrow is all about office politics and magic. We’ll see how it goes because I want to try an odd kind of format with it… I’m still thinking about it.
