Haven't written for days and now I'm ill (some kind of viral, headache, nausea thing) so am almost catatonic.
All in all the last story got a reasonable average in the crits (put was still sub 'par') and needs a lot of work to turn it into something good/publishable. The problem? At the moment I'm kind of stumped. I know what to cut but not what to put back in its place. I think I need to put some space between me and the story for a bit and let my subconscious do some cogitating. So - into the electronic 'bottom drawer' it goes while I ruminate on another story (an idea that came to me a year ago and hasn't quite gone away).
