Here you will see a PERFECT example of last minute work. Many, many moons ago a small group of us were given prompts and a week to write a story. I put the PRO in procrastination and simply forgot to write it.
The setup is familiar to you now. It was basically a 'purge' scenario long before such movies were commonplace. Newanderthal called it 'Thinning Day' in which a list of those who could legally be killed was published and they had to survive 24 hrs before the day was over and they were safe again.
I briefly wondered how hard it would be to put someone's name on such a list. Bureaucratic nonsense being what it is, below is my contribution to the group. (not surprisingly, the others' stories blew mine clear out of said county).
My lofty dreams of being a famous & brilliant writer were literally smacked out of my head. Now I plan to fill the void with copious amounts of subpar writing!
