So recently I’ve been trying to figure out what story to work on. Think I’ve said that, so I won’t belabor the point. In that search, I’ve come across two stories that I wrote with an old friend of mine. They were never finished or posted, and frankly, I didn’t even remember what state they had been left in.
After going over them, and finding some models, I’ve discovered that one (image below) is pretty far from being a coherent story. It was supposed to be, almost in the same vein as War on the 85th Floor, a tale of two women becoming rivals from 0 to I HATE YOU BITCH!

Not only that, but the premise wasn’t what I like in my stories, in terms of justification or believability. Don’t get me wrong, the writer was talented and clearly didn’t get a chance to proof the piece. Still though, as posted, the state of it was rough.
So, when I said I couldn’t, my partner asked if I would just rewrite it — changing all the aspects I found lacking. With the guidelines being that it
