I started writing this story at 1pm. I put an END at the bottom of it at 3:15pm. 1127 words, which is way more than the 750-word limit for the competition I wrote it for, but. I have a new Thing which I can now tinker into something awesome. I may hacksaw it for the competition and expand it for subbing. We'll see what I think once I've let it percolate for a little while.
I came up with the concept last night from one of the prompts for the competition, noodled it into a coherent story this morning, and then scribbled it this afternoon in a series of word wars. And I'm pretty pleased with it, overall. I think we'll code-name this one "lone wolf."
