October 18

Birthdays: Henri Bergson (1859), James Truslow Adams (1878), H.L. Davis (1894), Esther Hautzig (1930), James Robert Baker (1946), Terry McMillan (1951), Rick Moody (1961), Charles Stross (1964), Amish Tripathi (1974), Logan Pearsall Smith (1865)

Tip: In the story, motivation is the past (why they want something), goal is the future (what they want), and conflict is the present (why they can’t have it).

Thought for the day: “If you’re going to write for a living, you should find something fun to write.” – Charles Stross

Jumpstart: He had never come this way before. And now he knew why… (use bullet hole, fender, fence)
