Everything for Sale is a speculative story that I wrote in summer 2016. Unlike my other stories, there was no direct, single inspiration for this one. But finally paying off my student loans, and thinking back on what years of paying them meant, probably influenced it a lot.
This story was actually read out loud for a podcast, which was a real treat to listen to. I’d never had a full story of mine read out loud by someone else before, so it was quite the experience to listen to it. Very strange, but also very cool.
