So there is an election! Go vote! I already did (#352 in my precinct)!
But also, it's new story day. I've been doing mostly the novel and some poetry lately, so this is my first story publication in a while.
I am shy about this one.
It came tearing out of me all at once and left me gasping, and hopefully you can see why.
It's a Vegas story; I know those have some fans!
I sort of don't want to tell you about it.
But I want to talk about it.
So here's what we'll do. I would very much like you to read it - it's flash, it won't take you long. And then I would love to talk about it in comments. So read it and come back, and we'll talk. (Note: I'll be volunteering at a fundraising bake sale to send Elayna's band to NYC for a competition, so I won't be responding until after 1. But I'll be here a little bit until then.)
The story is "Splinter"
