A Week of Different Posts: Day Two


Post Two of Seven Days

I’m going to be spending a week hanging around with friends from a previous life and focusing only on short fiction. So for one week I’m not going to do the daily details. I will return to that in a week.

Came up with a cool title for a story that I worked on for a time today between conversations with friends and far too much great food.

“No One is From Here”

Should be able to finish it tomorrow.
