I found myself astonished that I was so close to finishing. I thought maybe I’d done something wrong. Then I realized—no, I’m just working on a short story for once. I suppose it’s a bit of an occupational hazard for those who, like me, spend most of their writing time working on novels: you just don’t expect the end to come so soon.
Climax and denouement shouldn’t take very long. It’s gonna go over my target length of 7500 words, but not by too much. I’m reasonably sure I can get it down to size.
