First Draft of The Knight Who Wouldn’t Die is done!

Managed to finish off the first draft of my current short story this morning! Wahey! Well pleased with this.

Also changed the name a bit, after all not many people will know who my character Jake is just yet. So the working title is now “The Knight Who Wouldn’t Die”. I think that’s intriguing enough, but also there’s a little twist in the meaning of it as well as will become clear for anyone who get’s a chance to read it.

I got up early this morning to write for a change, something I haven’t done in a while, and this definitely helped – mind too zoned, yet clear, to be distracted by anything else except writing narrative. Seemed to work well. I will have to grit my teeth and do this more often.

Next step for the story is for me to read it through a couple of times and make some edits. I’m not looking to cut it down too much, which is a relief. It comes in at about 4,700 words, which I think is fairly acceptable for most publications. Once the editing is done I will send it off to Critters and OWW for some feedback.
