I've finished Beef Stew from Anna Lou. It ended up being a good bit longer than I intended, but that's okay. As a matter of craft, I'm pleased with the turnaround time on this one. I came up with the idea in late September and got it done in mid-October, which is a pretty significant accomplishment (at least for me) for doing a story of this length. So that takes care of my Halloween story. On to the next project!
