For the exercise portion of the last stream, we wrote an entry to a contest that one of our viewers (Nicole Dark) is holding. The prompt is simple: write a gut-punching story in 1,500 words or less.

I really love how the story came together. It delivers not only one, but several punches straight to the gut. And the last one is a doozy.
