Fridays don't mean as much to me as much of the world because my work week starts on Thursday. Oh well. It's also probably a bleak day for the people who work one floor down from me in the Rocky Mountain News newsroom. Today is the deadline for Scripts accepting bids for the newspaper.

In other news, I finished another short story last night. I wrote over two days, and I'm proud of it. This one is direct and uncomplicated, which is something lacking in some of my other stories. I just need a title and an edit, and it'll be ready for critique hell. OK, I say that but critiquing is a valuable process that helps flag problems big and small before I send a story out on submission. Don't ever underestimate the value of an outside opinion.
