"In the Clouds of Jupiter": draft complete!

Hoooooray! The draft of my new story is done! And I like it. First some food, then a quick revision, then off to my first readers.

Wanna see it and feel up to reading 14,000 words on the quick so I can revise and ship it off to ericreynolds later tomorrow? Please let me know and I'll send you a copy!

Here was my inspiration, by the way; the piece of art that I'm "literating" (that is, illustrating via words versus vice-versa):

I have loved Ron Miller's art since I was in junior high-school, particularly this image. Thank you, Eric, for granting me the opportunity to finally write a story I've been wanting to write for decades!

EDIT: I've wrapped up my first edit pass and sent it off to folks who expressed interest in reading it by tomorrow afternoon. If you wanted a copy but didn't get one, let me know and I'll zing it your way!
