"The Beast" - a bit of flash
Mostly I tend to stretch my legs to about the 2500-3500 word distance, but every once in a while I get an outlier - a short little fragment that just feels good on its own, or something that seems to take a lot longer to tell.


The Beast is a little 400(!) word exercise in bouncing back and forth in time that kind of stuck with me.
