'The Big Game,' the story I've been slapping together piecemail for the past week, is now finally completed, more or less. I might add a few lines or tidy stuff up a little, but at least it's now a whole story.
I'm really sorry about that. In another post, I asked how to delete stories, not just to get rid of the accidental double-post but because I was afraid something like this would happen. I started the story, posted what I had finished, then discovered: 1) It was gonna hafta be a lot longer than I'd expected; 2) I didn't have time to finish it, so I'd have to try to complete it 'on the run' over the next few days; and 3) I didn't really like the story very much anyway. It was an insane idea for me to try to do it; I know next to nothing about football. In fact, you'll notice at no point do I specify how many boys are on each team. That's because I don't know how many p_layer_s there are in a game; I think it's eleven on each side, but I'm not sure and I didn't know where to check to find out. It's one of those things people assume EVERYONE knows, so most reference books don't mention it. On top of that, I was becoming decidedly paranoid; I kept worrying some Internet busy-body would read something out of context and decide I was posting kiddie-porn or somesuch.
Anyway, that's me whining. I'm sure somebody else could've done a much better job, and they're welcome to do so. (And before anyone asks, I can't 'cut and paste' on this computer. That's why I don't.)
I'm sure I'll do more stories later on. But for right now, I'm gonna take a break.
