Finished first draft of “Blind Date”

I completed the first draft of a new short-short science fiction story, “Blind Date”. The idea for this story was inspired by Lisa’s forgetting to pick me up for the kickball game this past Sunday. It’s nothing spectacular, but it amuses me. The premise couldn’t possibly hold for very long, so the story runs about 1600 words, of which I wrote 800 tonight.

It is, however, my first complete new story of 2006.
