Lucksmith - done

It took a few false starts but finally, finally I've finished the short story I've been working on.   I remembered the advice I was given "Start as close to the end as possible" and ditched all the preamble and exposition and cut straight to the key scene that was at the heart of the story.

I'm frustrated that it took me so long to recall that, but once I found the right starting point everything flowed just as it should.     Next time I'll remember that lesson earlier (I hope) and spare myself a few days worth of rewrites.
