Writing progress

Again I only did about a third of the stuff on my To Do List, but I won't bore everyone with details. However, I did do a thorough edit on the short story The Witch's Cat (see moan here.)and it's now ready to go out again tomorrow. I managed to remove 880 words and it's now a lean, mean 4,800. I've tweaked a couple of scenes and I hope it now a) makes the point more clearly and b) gets there more quickly.

(PS: I've just consulted the Yes/No Floaty Pen again and it says I won't sell it to F&SF, but we shall just have to see, won't we? It does say it's only right half the time...)
