First Science fiction story

I just wrote a science fiction story. I surprised myself. I'm supposed to be writing my fiction book proposal, which is about Burma and has no science fiction elements. I had no plans to write any science fiction in the near future. But the ways of procrastination are many. And I really can't fault myself for writing a entire story. I'm pleased with it, but I'm not sure if it's just because it was so unexpected. I need to let it rest a bit.

What inspired me was I read Young Writers on Lorem Ipsum about a list of science fiction writers under 20. Through the list, I found Orbiting by Anthony Ha. And my mind wandered and I wrote my story. My story and his are not really related, except in my mind. But assuming I still like it after a few days, I'll revise it and send it to Asimov's. It's worth a shot.
