"Sinking NeoVenice" Zeroth Draft done

The story’s finally reached an end. My zeroth draft is done (otherwise known as the “down draft” where you just try to get everything down). 

Next: the first draft (otherwise known as the “Up” draft, where I try to fix everything up) (these terms courtesy of Anne Lamott in “Bird by Bird”)

I’m pretty stoked that the story finally got wrapped up. I’ll admit I was at a loss over how to end the thing, but I took some advice I read somewhere which essentially said that the beginning of a story will often tell you how it’s going to end. So, I went back to the beginning of this story, read it through, and eventually figured out how it should end. Maybe a little weird, I know, but it worked for me.
