Just a heads-up.
The last installment for the Seven Cows story is scheduled for July 5.
Endings never make people happy because in real life stories never really end. Endings are artificial constructs for the convenience for the writer.
As a neophyte writer, I prefer to leave a story when it is effervescently bubbling and the readers can carry it forward in their own imagination. That is the goal of telling a story...to paint a series of pictures in the reader's imagination and have the momentum of the story carry them into the probability cloud of possible futures.
If history is a guide then I will savor the accomplishment of putting a story "in the can" for a month or two. Then a few of the minor characters will start talking to me, asking to have their story put into words.
Then it starts again.
