The Story

"We need a story Robert," the editor yelled over the phone.

"I just don't have anything," Robert responded, disappointed in himself once again.

"You know they're going to let you go. You were supposed to have a rough draft today."

"I know, I'm sorry."

"It's been a joy."


The phone clicked, and in that moment Robert finally had the inspiration he had been chasing for the last year and a half. He had a story to write.
