ORK on the latest short stories proceeds apace. Now I've just got to keep pushing that direction until they're all filled out, and worry about polishing LATER. It's remarkably difficult for me to repress the urge to polish. Too many years of proofreading will do that to a girl, I guess.
I also have to keep repeating Mr. Rutter's mantra from high school: "divorce your writing from your ego." Gahhh. Easy to say, hard to do.
