Wrote a new story about pirates in the library for the 12×12 challenge and was just revising it. I think it has potential, and may send it to my critique group for this round.
I think I am shelving my messy dragon story for a while. The story seems to be getting worse with each revision instead of better, so I think it just needs that set-aside time so I can look at it with fresh eyes.
Not sure where I am with the fairy story. Think I may set that aside for a while too. I like where this story is going, however. I’m just not sure how to improve it, and I’ve ran it through the critique group too many times, so I want to give it a rest.
I may end up submitting the fairy story to Rate Your Story, just to gauge what someone else thinks. I really like the idea of a number rating. I don’t know why I like quantitative versus qualitative, but I do. I guess it just gives me a place to set my goals.
