Instead of carrying on with The Price of Entanglement today, I decided I needed a change of pace and worked on an idea I've had for a while now. The result is An Improbable Reference, a story that changed an awful lot more in the writing than I'd expected.
I expected SOME changes, but it took off in a totally different direction. Originally I'd intended it to be more of a physical transformation or relocation of the character, rather than ... well, than what actually ended up happening. I won't spoil it for those who haven't read it.
It's a pretty short story, coming in at just over 1,100 words or so, so a tiny bit longer than Determination. I'm going to have to do more short fiction like this, it's good for clearing the mind out and staying out of ruts.
