I had decided not to write the short stories until Nighthunter was submitted, and that’s when I got the idea for Hunting the Reds and wrote it yesterday. And then again today, SAD #2 came to me. I had to dig into it, and work through the characters more thoroughly, but I’ve got the story and the resolution and just need to type it out. And again, my muse has shelved my story for revision.
So I am politely thanking her for her help, but suggesting she take a nap, or think on story #2 a bit more while I get Nighthunter in order. Lunchtime is here: I’m jumping onto the revision before my muse can throw anything else my way.
