I haven't made it back to my novel yet, but I have been doing some cathartic writing just for myself. I made it back to writing.com last night and dashed off a flash fiction entry for that day's competition. It had to be less than 300 words and use the words clay, list and nose. I spent less than an hour on it, and thought it was pretty cute in a limited time span.
ETA - What do you think? I had a comment that it was a bit too subtle and I needed to make it clearer who the character was.
