i've got time to spare on my hands.

a few summers ago, i wrote a mini-novel. then a sequel. then a third, and finally a fourth. i made it a series of mini-novels. they were silly, granted, but each had a storyline with a bit of truth and a lot of imagination. i only let a few people read them, and stored them away on floppy disks (yeah, floppy disks) and have them hidden in my room, along with the handwritten first drafts.

now that i have a laptop, there is no need to have hidden secret handwritten first drafts of anything i write. i am generally the only person that uses this computer, and i can take extra steps to password protect anything that is personal.

but the point that i am getting at is that i am feeling the itch. i'm spending a summer of doing nothing at all, and i have been bitten by the writing bug. i'm ready to write another "mini-novel". i'm ready to create another set of characters.

my only problem is that i don't know what to write.
