What I Think My Manuscript Looks Like After Critique...





Arg. Despite reading Forster's "Aspects of the Novel," and trying to focus on the aspects of why a character does something; despite trying to make a character-driven story based on emotions; and, despite trying to write to anthology specifications; I have produced a overwhelming description of confusing fantasy pastiches and meaningless character action that feels like a novel chapter and not a 4000 word short story.

Back to the drawing board.  Bother.
