That thing took no more than 45 minutes to write, and maybe another fifteen for revisions. That it was just the extra-credit section of the workbook portion of a PSIA certifying exam meant that it didn't need to be within shouting distance of perfect. Not even within megaphone distance.
Yet I actually like it quite a lot. And it was, easily, the most fun I've had writing something in a long, long time.
Maybe I'll make my fortune by taking commissions for silly little pieces like that. Anyone need a piece about the reticulated dreamcatcher of the snow-capped mountains of southwestern Borneo, or maybe something about the fearsome but beautiful euphonious zanzibar?
