Soon after I finished v 2, I realized that to fix the conflict, I needed to cut the entire first scene. The conflict in it distracted from the conflict I wanted to focus on. Bonus, cutting it meant that this would qualify as flash fiction. The downside is that many people thought the first scene was the best written, so it was a darling, and I cut it anyway.
I really like how this has shaped up as flash. It still needs a bit of polish work on it, and then I’ll send it out to the markets.
