There Be Whales...
Today's editing project was There Be Whales. Only I'm not sure what, if anything is wrong with it -- other than it seems much longer than it probably should be. But reading through it tonight, I didn't find much that I wanted to chop out. I cut a few short sections and tightened it up a bit, but on the whole I like how the story ends, and most of what's in the story... I'm just not sure if it really works at the current length, even after I chopped it down a bit. I cut it from 2,891 words to 2,551 words... still quite long for one of my silly Grandpa Anarchy stories. Probably too long, but meh. I think I need someone else's opinion on it at this point.
Anyway, I gave it an attempted rewrite.
