For Camp NaNoWriMo, I had to write 10,000 words in 30 days. The result is two short stories in one. Here they are. Disappearance is a world class thief with ragdoll-like superpowers, and he has his eyes on the Nano Wrimo Diamond. Follow him as he encounters many world building...er, I mean, colorful distractions along the way, meeting up with basic characters that I'll flesh out in future stories...er...complex human beings who can't be boiled down to one or two character traits, and flop flop flop all the way to the bank (figuratively; the diamond is in a museum)! Just think of Disappearance as Male!Catwoman and you'll be all set.
