This is not a short story.
Yesterday I hit the wall. Writing a story a day was no less taxing than I expected it would be, and I simply ran out of gas. I could not think of a single plot line that was worth tackling yesterday, and even now my brain still hurts.
So that was the experiment for this year. I'll rest a bit, get my brain back into working order and begin turning it to the next project. I hope some of you have enjoyed the work this month.
