Okay, right now I'm kinda busy writing the first draft of my short story for the Scotsman competition in March. I've got the two principal characters set up in a conflict situation but at this stage I don't exactly know how the story is going to pan out. My main aim is just to get it down on paper before Monday. Then I'll start editing etc. At the moment there's too much dialogue and it rambles to no good purpose. I find myself thinking, Geez, I wish these guys would get to the point.
