Additionally, while I was waiting for our first meeting for Matchbox (one of the magazines I'm working on), I started looking through my little Moleskine at all the story ideas I'd written down in there. I think I initially intended to come up with new ideas, but in the end I got stuck on something I had written in there some time back. It was only a single sentence attached to something cryptic that came from a book I was reading, but didn't have with me. It wasn't even a completed sentence; just a fragment. I stared at it for a while and then I started writing.
Now I have a new story called "Door," which is bizarre in number of ways (particularly because it opens with the image of a living creature that the main character was born with attached to his face). Unfortunately the writing got cut short, but when I got home I transferred everything I'd written in my Moleskine to the computer and added more to it. I have no idea where the story is going, but I really like it. I think it's more of a character-focuses story than some of the more plot-driven stories I've written. This is probably a good thing, though. I don't know.
In any case, that's what's up with me. How's the writing coming for everyone else?
