Too Short! Why is it so short!
Insert”That’s what she said” here
So, there’s this submission call due at the first of June. And for some insane reason, I decided to start on it a month and a half before the due date.
I just finished it today. And it’s 10K words too short. AND because it involves a romance between two asexual men, I can’t return to my old ways and try to crow bar in a sex scene or two. AND I don’t even have a title yet.
Fuck me running backwards.
So, I’m going to be spending the rest of the week adding in 10K AND editing. Damn, I need a beta reader for moments like these.
Though, I don’t feel that kind of negative pressure that I thought I’d feel when a deadline looms. Maybe it’s because I’m a bright and shiny and new writer (okay, probably), but I’m looking forward to the challenge. Do I add more conversations between Salvatore and Leo? Do I let them endure more nonsense form the one dissenting friend that doesn’t understand how happy they are in a relationship sans sex? How about extending the scene with Salvatore’s parents getting a handle on their son liking men in the first place? The possibilities are endless!
