I began a story "Look Away" over vacation, and I'm 2,000 words into it. I expect it to be about, but hopefully under, 10,000 words. I've finished the introduction by setting up the problem of the story and the two main characters.
Kiran seeks atonement when his bad habits allow a woman, Damayanti, to be robbed in front of him. Damayanti's distress over her stolen missing purse leads Kiran to manipulate his resources to find her purse and assuage his guilt.
