I shared this week—when I reached 8th for the first time—my thoughts on what would happen if I never moved up from 8th.
This whole thing started because they asked for storytellers to apply. One thing I know about writing is that sometimes the best pieces go from good to great because of editing. I have removed sentences, paragraphs, sometimes entire chapters to a make a story better, so that's what I think is happening here. This chapter doesn't fit in my story, and my story will be better for it.
