Don't you just hate it when that happens? "It didn't seem
like 800 words when I was writing it." And then you count them and you learn the awful truth.
Usually I do a rough outline of my stories in advance, so that I know that everything will fit. When I sit down and just let the story flow, I get into trouble. That happened with the last 300 Word Challenge. I am determined that it won't happen this time.
Unfortunately, my determination isn't worth much. As Oscar Wilde said (or one of his characters did, anyway, "I can resist everything but temptation."
