100 Days Kickoff

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

100 Days has been kicked off with a story called The Backups. We’ve had a few hard drive failures over the last few months. First my wife’s MacBook went, then Maggie’s, then one of John’s G Drives. Then I got paranoid and started up a Time Machine routine.

The question became: when do you back up the backup.

The larger question, of course, is generating a story about the issue and making sure everything required is covered. Middles are the key. And their study through the medium.

In Tinderbox, I have notes filled with titles and brief idea sketches, soon to be developed daily into stories, not much more that flash or sudden fiction length.

Anyway, we’ve begun.
