On Completion

And at 11:34 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, a short story was born.

The short story entered the world at 1,971 words, following a gestation of several weeks filled with false starts and blind alleys. The short story was finished with a final push of 1,498 words.

The short story has been put to bed for the night, and it will be reviewed in the morning. It may gain words or lose words when morning comes.

The short story does not have a name as yet, though its proud parent has several possibilities he is considering.

Welcome to the world, short story!
