A To Zers: Remember, you get TWO posts on the A To Z Challenge: This one, a 250-word story about Delicious Cake, and also my ongoing serialized story about the alphabet, which is in the post below this. It's Friday, you've got time, so why not read 'em both.
ALSO: Free books! My book Eclipse is free on Amazon today. Claudius is an astronaut, a young boy, an inmate in an asylum, none of those things, all of those things. It's a mind-bending scifi story! Get it free by clicking here.
Now, your 250-word short story:
How To Cook A Delicious Cake.
It is 8 a.m. Sunday morning. Inspiration strikes! But, it’s an amorphous kind of inspiration. It could inspire anything: paint a landscape. Sculpt the twilight of the gods in marble. You don’t have any marble. Where does marble come from? Is it an actual kind of rock you can dig out of the ground and it just is like that?
Or is it made up of other kinds of rocks, crumbled together somehow?
It seems kind of impossible to crumble together rocks to make other rocks, but isn’t that how diamonds are made?

STARRING KRIS KRISTOFFERSEN!
If he’s still alive, that is.
Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t. Who knows? It’s too early to think about that. It’s not, though, too early to think about cake, or is it? It’s 8:11 a.m. Sunday morning, which seems early, but by the time it’s done…
There's a whole bunch more 250-word stories, all in a convenient list of links right here. If I were you, I would read them ALL! RIGHT NOW. Don't worry about your boss. He's probably reading them, too!
