My currently active story now has 13,800 words of setup. I have 13,800 words leading me to "okay, and now what?" I have the gimmick fully established ... and no idea what to do with it.
I mean, I've got an idea of a plot to round it out with, but boy howdy is it tired. I guess it'd work, but if I'm having trouble caring ... meh.
If anybody out there is really, really bored and actively interested in trying to figure out a decent direction to take a strange (not-so-)little post-Trinity story, do please feel free to drop me a note. Otherwise, hey, maybe this'll finally let me move to a different story. So, not all bad, right? ... sigh.
