I am pleased to report that I have completed the first draft of my short story, “Building Baby Brother”. It weighs in at approximately 21,600 words (that’s roughly 98 manuscript pages)! Not quite the 2,000-word short tale that I originally set out to create.
While the current draft is rough in several respects, I’m rather pleased with both the results and the effort. If you work through the numbers, it works out to nearly 2 pages of writing per day—nearly twice the daily recommended dosage!
For those you might be interested in reading the story in its first draft state, it can be found here.
