There is a big storm here with lots of thundering and lightening. This also means I keep getting kicked offline. Today would be such a perfect day to get in some real, quality writing. The thing is, all my story ideas are good for novels, but not for short stories. I would like to get started on one of my novels, but I'd like to write a few short stories first to submit places. The thing is...I'm having trouble thinking of good ideas for a short story! Anyone have any suggestions? Not for a full plot, since I don't want to steal a plot from anyone, but for a setting, a character, etc. that I can incorporate in. Sort of like a game! And then I can take all or some of the ideas, mix them up, and come up with a story!
In other news, I LOVE big storms. I just don't like losing my internet connection every two seconds. Or being home alone with HUGE claps of thunder like, er, that one just now. Especially not while I'm in the middle of reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, which is, so far, an excellent book but very graphic and, ah, adult rated. And disturbing at some parts, including the walking dead.
