Well, I have to make them sometimes. My NaNoWriMo piece is probably the best one I’ve written. At least, it’s the only one I haven’t hated. I think it really ‘has legs’, and I definitely want to finish and edit it.
But … (you knew there was a but coming, didn’t you?)
I already have “Buried Threat” half finished, and I feel this is more worthwhile completing before the NaNo thing (called “Footprints”, BTW). And I am inspired by Michael Connolly’s Harry Bosch short stories – collections (3 per book) are out on Kindle at Angle of Investigation and Suicide Run. Both very recommended. Anyway, I have a couple of Connolly-like shorts in the wings, which are desperate to see the light of day. It’s a busy time to be a writer.
