Review and revise attached fiction story, and make sure that the revised story is at least 1000 words.
I think the best thing to get away from telling while preserving some of the interesting, and possibly necessary, backstory is to zoom in on certain figures interacting.
Please consider following: Revision means deep and large-scale reorganization, creation, deletion, and other similar overhauls of the work. Surface level editing is not revision.
Include a short 200 (minimum) word author note about the revision process for this piece, as well as the overall strengths, weaknesses, inspirations, and areas for growth you observe in this process.
