I finished and submitted my sixth short story of the year, a 3,600-word Mother's Day confession.

This story has Plot Monkey's fingerprints all over it. Last January we sat at my dining room table, developed the plot hook and the basic plot, and I started writing the story on January 9. I don't remember why I set it aside--perhaps because I knew I couldn't finish it in time to submit for 2010 Mother's Day issues--but I picked it up again earlier this month, finished it, and sent it on its way.
