There are three things that keep me (mostly) sane -- driving aimlessly, wandering the streets in the dead of night, and writing. This blog is the new venue for the third thing, and I hope it'll make me more likely to actually write.

The premise was inspired by the story-a-day group over on livejournal, which I have criminally neglected and which was, in turn, inspired by NaNoWriMo. The practice is inspired by the <a href=">morning pages</a> described in Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way" even though it's not really the same exercise. Here's how it'll work, until I come up with something better or just feel the need to change it: on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I'll post a story I pulled together in under an hour based on prompts from the story-a-day list, old notes that I have lying around, conversations overheard in diners, or, most notably, user comments. To that end, if you have a story prompt of any kind, leave it for me... that way I'm not just using titles or something randomly generated for story ideas, but might actually hit on something someone else wants to read. Imagine! Also, if any of YOU have a story to share based on the prompt I use, please feel free to share that in the comments, too. The more the merrier! I reserve the right to put up old stories that were written under similar half-assed conditions in order to keep to the schedule without violating the improvisational spirit of the exercise. Plus, it'll give you something to read when I slack, and I'm sure I will. I can't do that very often, though, because I don't have as many of those as I think I do, so please, PLEASE keep me supplied with wacky ideas. I think that is all. Wish me luck.
