… because that’s how rough drafts work!
I’m playing with a story that I started a year or two ago and then put aside because it was lacking something and I couldn’t figure out what.
Every couple of weeks or so I flip through my notebooks (I have a couple of dozen) and see what catches my eye.
This time, I saw what I could do with this story. I think it will pan out — it feels right.
If it does, I think “Stuck Jenny’s” will be a natural for my next collection, Doldrums. Feels like it will be 5-10 thousand words on self-driving RVs, generation gaps, and class divides.
I’m looking forward to writing it.
