Some other emphasis by Jeff and Kelly that beginning writers tend to tell too much, because they're afraid the reader won't get it. Let your readers do some of the work. They're smarter than you think. Kelly says that not nailing down the meaning of your story is helpful in expanding your potential pool of readers: different readers may get different things out of the story, including things the writer may not have intended. That's okay.
Hm. I'm getting echoes of the 'texts have no fixed meaning' stuff here.
My own 900 word story? I don't like it. It feels stale, both in the situation and the sciffy element. I probably should have done something else.
