A Note: Accountability

by Cooper Young

I’m going to be straight with you: there’ll be no story tonight. I have an idea–one that’s taking more research than I had anticipated–and it feels like it’s a good enough idea that I don’t want to rush it. I know if I tried to do it all tonight I’d half-ass it, and I’d like to not do that. Luckily a) it’s for a writing challenge, so you’ll see it no later than Friday, b) the boiler burst at my kid’s school yesterday so I don’t have to spend two hours of my day driving her back and forth across town tomorrow, and c) now that I’ve told you about it, I have to finish it or look like an ass.

But yeah. Come see me in a couple of days.
