About 30 (Not Safe For Work short story - language advisory)

I started writing this a while back. Maybe about a year ago. I was just jotting down notes and sentences here and there on my phone or in a notebook. I kept telling myself that I needed to sit down and finish it. Then there was a famous tweet during the summer that made me think I'd waited too long, reality had trumped fiction, sort of. But later I reconsidered and decided to keep at it. I wanted the writing practice, and it was a story I thought I could actually finish rather than have bits and pieces of writing just floating around. I'm not really sure what it is - perhaps a one act play masquerading as a short film. Doesn't really matter.

I've obscured people's names a bit. But the characters are at least loosely based on a group of people I've been lucky to meet. They're all talented, (very) hard-working, and creative.

ONE MORE WARNING - There is some very salty language in here. If you're on a work computer, I'd recommend saving it for later. If you're under 18, you shouldn't be reading it. But if you do, don't get busted.

If you'd like to read it, here's the link. (I moved it to a Writing page because of the language.)
