i'm still at the third revision of my flood story. brought the word count up from 3016 to 3154. including spaces, the story consists of 19'521 characters with spaces at the moment. i've just finished revising page 5 of 8 and concentration is fading. not sure why exactly, perhaps i just need a break. the plan is to complete the third revision tomorrow, so that i can print it out and revise it for a fourth and last time the day after. once done, i'll send it in by email. as a title is not required, i'll probably leave the story untitled. somehow i just don't enjoy giving titles. i never read them, either. chances are, this is why, so far, i wasn't aware that the fm4 competition is held in cooperation with the austrian newspaper der standard.
