So, one of those short story sales I talked about a few months ago? My story “At Your Service” will appear in the Sidekicks! anthology, edited by Sarah Han. The most important people don’t always get top billing, ya know, and this antho is full of stories about them. This was one of those stories where I had a vague concept of what I wanted to write about but no real ideas for how to do it until I’d written half the story. That’s when the light bulb hit–a ha!–and the rest just flowed. A few editing passes later and I had a final draft. I’m a “pantser” by nature; for me, going in blind is half the fun.
Remind me of that in a few months when I’m moaning about how much I hate writing first drafts.
