On Monday, I finished writing, recording, and scheduling a completely different short story for this week's 512 Words. I was pretty happy with it. But you're not going to see it today. Why?
Because, on Wednesday, I came across this BBC News article, which reminded me of another story I'd written seven years ago. When I dug up the manuscript and saw that it was only 650 words long, I knew what I had to do.
And yes, "True Story" is the original title. I considered changing it to avoid any confusion, but it's just too perfect.
Read "True Story" at 512 Words or Fewer
