This is a draft of an opening scene. It is only a draft. Do not pass ‘Go’. Do not collect $200. Before you get to the draft, let me provide some commentary. First, once I start writing, I try to keep going even if the story seems to be careening off of a cliff. Second, this story in its current form is not a fable. I’m thinking of renaming it ‘The Ballad of Old Flat Head’ but a ballad implies singing and that’s something you don’t really want me to do. It might be prudent of me to keep the title, cut a lot of dialogue and compress the form. Third, the story right now focuses too much on the kids. My gut is telling me that I need to skip the origin story and pick up with the cat after she has her kittens. Hence a lot of this is destined for the cutting room floor. I’m posting it anyway because I want a record of everything, false starts included. Lastly, space ships. Where are the bloody space ships?
