Greetings, Word Scientists!

At our September Meetup, I led the group in an experiment that was all about fitting your story (or poem, or essay, or article) into a variety of different vessels. Here's the prompt so you can try it again at home, or for the first time if you couldn't make it out:

1. First, write a story in 30 minutes. Use the keyword "autumn" to inspire you. (In repeat exercises, choose a new keyword)
2. Next, write that same story, but do so in only 6 minutes.
3. Finally, write your story one last time in a tight 90 seconds.

Share your work below and tell us which of your three stories you think is the strongest.
