Written February 1st, 2020, this came about from a challenge to myself: a 100 word story.
During the beginning of the pandemic, I challenged myself to write a short story every week. This is one of those stories.
Here I've successfully created a cynical protagonist! Also very proud the descriptions, bordering on purple prose but not quite.
Taken from a 5/31/20 entry in my writer's journal. Here I compare what I knew about writing in high school versus in college.
The most inspirational speech in the world? An exercise in writing absurdity. Finished in February 2019.
