Okay, I confess — I laughed.  Especially at the ending.  Good job here. And Steven’s right. Very meta.

Best of luck,
Gary

Wasn't expecting that. Nice tongue in cheek story. Was quite funny, the 'goodest'. Made me laugh in places. This deserves to go a few rounds in the comp, if not win.

I liked the irony and the overall direction isn't bad, (good fourth wall breaking regarding the brevity of the very short the viewer is actually watching that moment… kind of). But a real out of this challenge form would have been doable, and actually, I believe, be much more entertaining, even justify a production perhaps.

I didn't really want to like this because it uses an old device writers fall back on when they can't think of what write about. That is, write about not having anything to write about.
But, you turned it around for me. And everyone here can relate.

Very good! Haha. Reminds me of me lately.

I’ve read three or four of these so far, and not a lousy one in the bunch.

Good job, writer.
