The Anti-Rafe

Under the “read more” link is a short story I found on my flash drive. It’s as finished as it’s gonna get, because I submitted it to a writing contest in 2015 (didn’t win or even place).

I actually managed to write about a page in one of my stories that’s been neglected since mid-2016 or so. That was the first page of fiction I’ve written in… over a year, I think.

Picking up where I left off was easier than expected, and I remembered how the characters behaved, more or less, so the mere act of writing made me ridiculously happy.

Lest I jinx anything, I haven’t set any kind of word count goal, although I do plan to keep writing on my lunch breaks or whenever I can get a minute. Even one word a day is better than nothing!
