I finished and submitted my seventeenth short story of the year a few minutes ago. This one's a 4,700-word bit of crime fiction that I roughed out on a paper towel May 24 while sitting at a winery awaiting the performance of a local musical duo. Unlike my usual process, this time I made a diagram of how several characters were associated and a flowchart of how what each one does impacts the other. The initial flowchart included a twist, but I added additional twists during the writing.
