Did you write it in eight minutes?
JK, good luck with the writtings.
No, it took many days.
A lot of people gets surprised by the time it takes to write a story 600 words long, but fact is it is very hard to encapsulate something meaningful in such a small wordcount. The proces involves creating many pieces and then discarding them, and when you come up with something you like, you give it to profreaders, who will pour all their hate on your baby until you shred the draft and start working in another one.
