What the hell is this?

Well, let's just say that for various reasons, I've hit a bit of a wall again. In order to flex a few more creative muscles, instead of bringing you a new grayhound chapter, instead I've decided to post up something altogether different.

Let me see if I can explain what this is.

More than a year ago, there was a site that offered a write your own story link. Being young and innocent to the world, I thought that this would be fun. and wrote up the first part of this having no idea where any of it would go. I later learned that these build your own story things are pretty much doomed to failure since you kinda need to have a start, a stop and a middle. I even tried it out in our local forums just to see if the folks here were more creative than the folks there. (You are, by the way). Two other folks submitted ideas to it as well, and they were pretty good. In fact the second section is actually a follow up to one of them, but now tweaked to remove the suggestion since something else happened.

Yep, I actually thought out a full plot line for this beast.

I know where it's going, who's going there and have a rough idea of how it's going to get there. There's some fuzz in the middle that I've still yet to sort through, mind you, but I've actually got a real, live breathing plot to this, with a definite end. And I'd like to think that it's also a fairly original one at that.

I've no idea how long it's going to take to write this, or even if I'll get burned out before I finish it, but it does give me a chance to work on a few things that I've not been able to do in a while.

And as always, feel free to tell me how much it sucks, how I'm an inexcusable louse, and how you hope to read about my horrible demise beneath a herd of ferrel hamsters.

And so with none of that in mind...
