One Genius Trick for Fiction

List twelve things your character
Actually owns—typewriter,
Movie star poster, airplane,

Beat-up old Honda Civic,
Wood stove, quill pen, new Roomba,
Phone that fits in her pocket,

Rotary phone on the wall,
Penknife with a bone handle,
AR-15, voodoo doll.

Now, write us a short story
About how your character
Somehow came to have it all.
