Today I finished my short story. It's perfect, absolutely perfect, just the way it was written. Every word is perfect. Every sentence is crystalline clear. No writing has ever been as fresh as this writing. I coould not, even if I needed to, change a single syllable.
This is, of course, the honeymoon period. If I put the story away for a few months, I will see that it can be improved. Must be improved. No way is it going to leave the house looking like that!
But for now, it is perfect, and I cannot wait to show it to someone. Any victim, er, alpha reader or listener will do. I have my finished story and I'm not afraid to share it!
