Shiny New Idea

While walking the dog, I came up with a shiny new idea. Only it's based on the oldest idea in my idea file.

What's my idea file? Any time I get an idea, an interesting line, a crazy dream, I write about it in my idea file and save it for another time when I want to write that book.

At the bottom of this file is a one sentence quote. I've mulled this one over several times in the past and always came up with something very maudlin that did not entice me to write it. This time, the voice came to me and I wrote the first chapter. That's enough for now as I have other irons that are screaming in the fire.

But, oh, it feels good to have that started as I really, really like that first line. Really.
