This “short” story is almost done

FINALLY! I’m almost done with this really long short story. I’m sitting at 11,079 words as I type. Longest short story for me to date. Normally, I’m WELL under that for short stories. But this one… this one just kept begging for more and more. I kept trying to find ways to trim fat, but just couldn’t. The joys and traps of writing mystery/crime stuff. If you skim too much, it’s like “really?”

Only one more scene left. Just one more scene. And then it’s done.

And when I’m done, I’ll be like Elaine here.
