I wrote a science fiction short story today after four days of not even wanting to think about writing a word. I'm obviously in recovery.

It's still very rough because I wanted to get it on paper before it got away, and I cut two scenes that may go back in, and I think I probably rushed the ending and it's not set up adequately, but it has my official favourite title I've ever given a short story. It's called

Not to Miss the Samango Monkeys."

I've never written a short story with a period in the title before.
