[writing] a quick story, done quickly

While A was at soccer practice, I sat in the car and whipped out a first draft of the "Ben Franklin alternate history flash fiction" story I referred to in an earlier Twitter post.

Roughly called "The All-Questioning Eye", it ended up at 1500 words in first draft. Too long for flash, but short beyond that. I'll let it sit then come back and do something with it. Maybe I'll give it to SacSpecFic for review.

Now that it's out of the way, I'm back to a requested editorial revision, a harder problem indeed. And getting ready for Saturday's math contest! The trophies are here, and they're awesome. Picture later.
