Hot damn! Who has two thumbs and met his deadline with two minutes to spare? This guy!
I just completed work on my "Gorilla of the Gasbags" story, a pastiche of Edgar Rice Burrough, Joseph Conrad, H. G. Wells, and Robert Louis Stevenson, among others. Nothing like completing a work to bolster one's sense of accomplishment.
Going to let it sit for a day or two, and then I'll make some final tweaks before I take it to Turkey City this weekend.
Did I how frellin' pumped I am? Well, yeah, I'm stoked. So there.
