I didn’t realize that Microsoft Word now has a “Similarity to online sources” function. After I finished a story tonight, I tried it out, and I’m pleased to say that according to Microsoft Word, it was 0% plagiarized.

This story was solicited for an anthology. It’s the kind of story where I really, really hope the editor knew what they might receive when they asked me to write something. It’s the kind of story where “WTF is THIS???” is a completely valid reaction.

Actually, now that I’m writing this, it occurs to me that I’m still waiting to hear back about two other stories I sent upon request, which could also easily get the “WTF is THIS???” response…
