The first week of January flew past in a flash. I've been busy at work and I also finished my new short story (uh, not at work, but here at home). I polished it each evening, looked for adverbs to remove, and typos that needed fixing. I took out the almosts and justs and maybes. Now its done and I'm real happy with it. For awhile last year, I wasn't sure I'd ever get it finished.
