I'm doing this August Fiction thing not just to force myself to write. I was also hoping for my muse, the part of my brain responsible for ideas, would become more productive through all the exercise she's getting.
I hope I'm not jinxing it by writing this, but I think today the exercise paid off. I had a pretty cool idea for a story, complete with a strong narrator. I outlined it and while I was at it, the muse threw more ideas at me. It looks like writing this baby will be a lot of fun.
I didn't write a new story but this was a good writing day nonetheless.
