In the first draft of this story this was, more or less, the last page. The inclusion of Jo changed that. I like each of these parts to have a feeling of closure. Like, a capstone that says “This is the end of this part”. I’m not sure what my success rate is, but whatever. I try at any rate. The new ending has a fun scene with Carol and Thomas. I’m not really sure why I keep writing these things so they take place over the course of a day, more or less, but it seems to work alright. I think I should release each one as a book for itself rather than just arbitrary pages. The shorter stories will be less expensive. Anyway, something to think about.
