On my lunch break today, I read over the story that I finally (and almost accidentally) finished writing the other night.
I am pleased to report that it is, in fact, mostly coherent. I fixed a couple of minor things, and have now sent it off to my favorite proofreaders. No doubt they'll catch some things that I missed; that's why I ask them to proofread. But, even on a first reading a couple of days after the writing, I can say with some certainty that it doesn't completely suck. So, y'know, there's that.
Once they're done with it, I'll brave a submission.
