I was having a hard time with revising “Meddling Gods”, so I decided to take a break to write something just for fun. I looked through a book of prompts and saw “A woman suspects that her neighbor is her grandson.” I immediately thought of time travel, and started to brainstorm who was time travelling, and why without doing something that hasn’t been done a million times before.
I like the idea that I came up with. The story still feels rough, but I think it has some real potential. I’m glad I was able to squeeze time into my vacation to write it. It’s also interesting that this is my first science fiction story in a long time.
