Place Series Day 2: Home Depot

22 Aug

Dear Home Depot: What story will you bring me? One about a husband who’s getting a bit too handy around the house, of course. I had to fight hard for this one—lots of starts and stops. It’s okay, probably not a lot of potential for being publishable. Onward.


Working Title: Mr. Fix-it
1st Sentence: No Mr. Fix-it in the bedroom, I said.
Favorite Sentence: Or to discover that he’d glued aluminum foil to the dining table using wallpaper paste because he read on a website that it would give the table a beautiful faux-pewter finish.
Word Length: 837
