I just finished the first draft of a short story called "The Violinist". I'm pretty happy with the rough draft, and don't think it will need much more, just some editorial tightening. Then again, I have been wrong about these things before.
I'm not sure what exactly the tale is about. It might be about science vs. faith, and how both cannot be depended upon to be either right or wrong. Perhaps that neither should be absolute moral compasses. It might also be about the identities we create for ourselves in order to come to terms with who we are. I'm not sure.
Either way, a fine way to end off 2008, writing wise. *clink*
