My Deal Me In deck gave me a heart again, so I got to read another Alicia Butcher Ehrhardt story!
This one isn’t a Drabble (100-word story). So I got to spend a little more time with her words. Yay!
by Alicia Butcher Ehrhardt
This science fiction told me something I didn’t know about octopus biology. Disappointed in you, octopusses. Deeply, deeply disappointed. Try harder. Do better.
ANYWAY, this piece is told in first person in a serious, confessional style, which shows itself to be inevitable by the end. True science fiction, science- AND character-driven, in very few (though more than 100) words.
If you want to read more of Alicia’s work (and you do), do yourself a favor and buy the stand-alone first book of her in-progress, PRIDE’S CHILDREN trilogy, PRIDE’S CHILDREN: PURGATORY. You can thank me later.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about procreation.
