As Writing Experiment #453, I’m going to attempt to write 500 Good Words. I’m sick of pouring out crap to make my pretend goals. Today, I took a section from my poorly drafted secret story and tried to rewrite it. I still feel it’s forced, but at least I forced it in the proper direction. I’m dropping you in the middle of the story but I included enough hints to let you know what is going on. And, yeah, I know it’s melodramatic. Sue me. (And, no, I didn’t count this consternated throat-clearing introduction as part of the 500 words. That would be pathetic, even for me.
