Not to interfere with an editor's comment, but...

I used to write plot synopses, flesh them out, and call them stories.  That 
evolved into the "Wyatt Ferguson" storytelling style.  But it took work to make 
even that happen.  Before that, I was just lazy, until I experimented with other 
commentators - which evolved into the "World Journal Monthly" style.  I can't 
call "One Day at a Time" lazy, though, because it's almost pure dialogue.

Only their myths concerned peace and contentment, and that in such a
coercive, sullen package it was obvious that the Earth humans resented
the very idea.
