Final draft complete!

I wrapped up the final draft of the February story this evening.  The last pass through stood at 6,300 words and in doing line-edits tonight, I managed to cut it back to 5,500–more than 10% of the whole.  It’s going through a final review by some critical eyes before I send it off, but overall, I’m pretty satisfied with the story.

Now I can get back to work on the March story.  I have the whole story mapped out in my head and I only need to write it.  I’m guessing 13 scenes.  If I can do a scene a night, I have have the first draft done by the end of the month.
