I’ve also had this one written for a few days. I gave myself two challenges with this piece. First, no fantasy elements. I wanted to keep this one fiction, but without using anything fantastic in the magical or technological sense. Second, I wanted to keep it to 300 words. The second challenge ended up being a lot more difficult than I initially thought it would be. 300 words is not a lot when you’re trying to tell a complete story, and often I struggle when I’m given 1,000. Overall, though, I’m pretty happy for how the piece came out. I’ve definitely written worse.
I’ve been struggling with writer’s block over the last week but I have Day 13 halfway done so with any luck I’ll have that up tonight, but there’s a good chance that my updates are going to start getting slower over the next couple of weeks as I’ve also started another draft of Messier 51 after getting some notes that are going to require extensive rewriting.
Anyhoo, here’s Day 12:
Prompt: Lancelot, flannel, aeronautics.
