While I am ultimately the arbiter of my writing destiny, I could use help discerning which of my pieces are in desperate need of retooling. That’s where you come in. The second week of each month, I’ll post a story that I’ve written at work, and you’ll help me fix it. Sound too much like homework? It’s not.
