Rebecca Long moved to California from Chicago, where at seven years old she once appeared in the opening credits of a local children’s television show, and now worries this might have used up her “five minutes of fame.” She was editor-in-chief of her community college newspaper, frequently chooses “bard” when she plays Dungeons & Dragons, and stole her neighbor’s cat. She is a mom, wife, and writer, currently submitting her completed Humorous Middle School manuscript to agents and editors.
This ten word story is typed on a manual Olympia De Luxe typewriter. c. 1966. Let’s call her Olivia.
