Just finished writing a story; the first one I've actually finished since December 1997. I've begun to tentatively hope that the long drought is over. I'm not going to really celebrate until I've started working on the next one, whatever that turns out to be.

But it does feel good to have this one done. Maybe I'll try to sell it; I can go to the library tomorrow and see if they have the latest edition of Writers' Market. And I can see if that nifty Hewlett-Packard Deskjet 500 I scored for free over the weekend works.
