Fever Dream

Well, Fever Dream *was* complete... and then I deleted the ending. I knew it wasn't right when I was writing it, and it's still not right (did I think it would change magically overnight all by itself? Don't be silly, Claire).

Where does the story end? I don't know. I've been hoping to find out but still no luck. My deadline for this piece is in a couple of weeks, and that's for the polished, shiny, final-draft version, not a gross incomplete thing like a mangy, half-blind puppy with only three legs.

For Christ's sake, it's only a short story. Just over 4,000 words (well, it was). What's so hard about that, eh?

Hmm.

I think I'll just go and get on with it - something's bound to work out... I hope...
