Here's the decision with the short story: I will submit it in two parts.
As soon as I came to that conclusion, the words came just a little easier but I do need just a little more freakin time. I was busy with the novel and thought I could do it...but such was not the case. Then, reading Fred's submission, I realized I didn't need to finish it all at once! So I get to submit twice. Once this month and once next month. While I'll only get one piece out of it, at least I'll feel productive.
At least I don't have a page count necessary this month like some other people.
Who I love.
