...then last night a single sentence kept rolling around in my head, and I couldn't sleep until I wrote it down.
"We were in the cemetery counting scars when the black car pulled up."
...what I know so far:
1) male protagonist, not sure of the age yet, but in the 14-16 range
2) secondary character Kell (female) same age/grade
3) both are covered in scars/old injuries
4) they are cutting class to hang out in the cemetery, but I don't think they go to the same school
5) no idea who gets out of the black car, but whoever it is, is visiting a grave, and also spooks the main character and/or Kell in some way
...and that's it.
That's how each new story I write begins. A single sentence, and a visual glimpse of the opening scene.
No title yet, so for now it'll be known as Project #6
Now, off to another decompression treatment!
...it's been interesting finding out how much damage there is from old injuries... ribs out of alignment, scar tissue on my ribs, and torn connective tissue around my left collarbone (re-healed incorrectly) are the latest finds.
and so a new story takes shape....I'm waiting impatiently for some new characters....ReplyDelete
So am I!Delete
It's always interesting to see the seeds planted and watch the germination take place.ReplyDelete
Hoping the treatments continue in a positive way for you...correcting what needs to be corrected.
Should fix it eventually, but when a rib's been out of alignment for about 10 years and they pop it back into place... let me tell you, it's difficult to even sit at my computer for longer than 5 minutes.Delete
Which complicates this snippet of story that's clawing at my grey matter ;)
The worst part is when one doesn't write it down, figuring to recall it on morning only to find it is gone -- and every attempt to catch it seems to veer further away from it.ReplyDelete
Also: glad stuff is going well.
Heh, very true :) Actually, there were a few more lines that sprung up after I went back to bed, but they disappeared by morning :(Delete
Never thought being stretched on the rack could be so healing ;)
new story sounds exciting...:) Hope you feel better.ReplyDelete
...when I can figure out more of the story I'll be pretty pleased as there's too much mystery right now :)
OMB it's catching. I have a new idea as well. Have the characters but no plot...ReplyDelete
Get writing, woman!
Man, I love it when that happens! Can't wait to see what you come up with!ReplyDelete
Me too :)Delete
...although I'm disappointed 'cause I was looking forward to catching up with my reading... and I can't red/write at the same time :(
