I've handed in my next story. I'm not at all happy with it because I simply ran out of time before I could wrestle it into reasonable shape. I think it's a good idea that will eventually become a good story but that's a very long way off yet. To depress myself even more, I intend to crit it myself before the session tomorrow and compare that to what comes out in the crit room .
It was 1:00 am last night before I finally burned it to disc and after that I still had to crit four stories which I hadn't even read at that stage. I gave up and went to bed, setting my alarm for 5:45 am, so I could do the crits in the morning. I'd just got to sleep and crash - thunder and lightning started and continued until around 3:00 am. I think it was gods overhead at war with lightning spears and thunderbolts. I'd doze off and then it would begin again.
As a result I'm utterly exhausted and off for a nap.
