I just now finished a story I first started in 2004. Yep, 2004. I worked on it consistently for several years and then would go back to it between novels, but I hadn’t worked on it since 2010 when I submitted it to a graduate school workshop my first residency. Last month I brought it up here to take another crack at it.
The things I felt were important to the story never did make sense. For example, it’s about Ansley, but I felt strongly it was Nora’s story to tell.
Well, I finally cracked the code. I’ll send it out next week and see what happens.
