I stopped writing daily back in September (2012). I thought through many different possible settings and characters necessary to carry the idea, and be an interesting story. One night while falling asleep I thought up a line I thought was pretty good as an opening line. I wrote it down on a notepad I keep near my bed. I really don’t write down everything that comes to my mind while falling asleep. If I did, I’d never get to sleep. So, this was a very rare (only time in 2012) occurrence.
On Thanksgiving day, and the day following I started working out that opening line.
