Finished a short story!

I finished my "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" story! (Might need some editing, but aside from that...) Wow. From start to finish in two days! Of course, it helps that I spent at least a week planning the story in my mind first. And guess what? I even have an idea for another story in the same universe!

"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is the story of a ship of Joquari merchants being attacked by a mysterious new enemy they start calling "Zokek" since zo kek is Joquari for "no faces." (The Zokek have faces, but hide their bodies entirely, including their faces.) It starts out a bit slowly, because life on Joquari ships is usually quite sedate, but once the action starts, oh boy! I didn't want to put it down! I hope any readers (like beta readers) will feel the same way. And all this takes place in the Mindeodean universe, a universe where there's lots and lots of planets with life, but humans seem to be the only sentient species (at least in our galaxy, anyway).

I am so stoked! I'm gonna start planning that new story idea.
