I’m Baaaack

I tend to put together my stories in pieces. I have a whole catalog of half-ideas, a scene, a character, a plot without a place, even just a description. One I have sitting on top right now, just at random, is “the horns of the street were like an ecology of their own: the deep chuck of the police van, the high warble of a bus, the angry growl of a Nissan.” Other half-ideas I have sitting around are “Zen Technician v. Natural Prodigy” and the image of Green Snake, reborn as Madame Green Snake after spending the whole story grown pale and blind.

I have a whole backlog of story halves, waiting for me to match up the other half (or threesome). But I don’t have any such thing for blog posts. For this reason, I found it impossible to sit down and write one. James Chen at the Thoughtscream advised me to sit down, and start writing, and let inspiration come after. So I have, and so here I am. You’ll be seeing a lot more out of me here on out.

And Red Penny Monday stopped because I started writing up my own version of the Legend of the White Snake for the next week’s entry. I’m still writing it. It will be awesome.
