A lot of writing is fine-tuning your writing, or creating clever structure, but the most important thing is the story itself.

Consume: Read “Husband Stitch” by Carmen Maria Machado.

Create: Write a 200-400 word story with the following outline:
- A is with B.
- A loses B.
- A makes a choice that brings B back.
- A and B are back together, but different as a result of that choice.
