I was sitting in the car today, dwelling on an urge to write a short story, when it came to me how to restructure a certain WIP to do just that. I hope. The good news is that I wrote 900 words in it tonight. The iffy news is that I forgot how short 900 words can be. I have only gotten through two out of seven bullet points in my outline, and I didn't outline an end scene yet. Hmm.
It could still be short enough. Wish me luck!
