There is a deadline quickly approaching for the first quarters writing contest. AJ doesn’t have anything. But she’s thinking of writing a short story. There are a few Sci-fi floating around in her head, while it’s better than her prior contests at 17K words, that’s still shorter than what she usually uses to tell a story.
The question becomes what does she write about? Me? A version of me? Some federated space pilot? A mutant bounty hunter? How about a dragon rider? Or a mundane stumbling upon the magical world?
I guess AJ could flip through some prompts to see if anything catches her eye.
I’d hate to not be front and center, but maybe AJ needs something even if it’s me. We could find Sterling, or perhaps the Angel/Demon pairing of Sterling’s birth. A short story for Ant – maybe his first encounter with me? Because I’m fairly sure that he has been following me for a while.
The problem AJ has is that she has difficulty finding a singular plot to follow that doesn’t cover a lot of back story and is fully complete.
