Drafted a new story,…

Drafted a new story, between 8-10 tonight, "The Night Air." Alien grad student smut. This is the second short piece I've written in the last week, and it is SO DAMN SATISFYING. It reminds me why I wanted to be a writer in the first place. It's in many ways the type of story I wrote when I was first starting out (but with more aliens [and also, I hope, just better-written, after twenty years of practice]), and now I'm wondering a little why I spent so much time in the weeds with novel after novel.

I mean, I'm not sorry I tried to write novels (and maybe succeeded), 'cause I love reading novels. And I plan to try writing one again, but this -- this is sheer swift joy.
